My passion is great storytelling, using powerful words and colorful video. Maybe I'll figure out how to do that someday.

Something I love about my job is that I get to meet all the ordinary, amazing heroes among us and share their stories with the world.

My news career started right here in my home state of Texas, where I got my journalism degree from the University of Houston, and then got my first news job at KPRC Channel 2 in Houston, first as an editor and then a news writer.

My first reporting gig was with KBTX in Bryan/College Station, where I was honored to receive two Texas AP awards and a Texas Emmy nomination for a story on robots helping homebound children attend school. I was also able to break a story about a high school student who was suspended for standing up for a special needs kid who was being bullied. The amazing and controversial story eventually went national with my video and interviews.

After a four-year stop at KTUL in Tulsa, I’m glad to be back in my home state of Texas.

My family and I are still getting plugged in here in San Antonio, but we enjoy being part of our community, so we are out and about a lot. Maybe we'll run into each other, unless it's past 8 p.m. and the kids are sleeping. That's our Netflix time.

I seem to remember something called free time. Right now, my free time is spent mostly with my four little women and my one beautiful wife. Little girls who wake me up way too early in the morning, asking for food and make my life... well, beautiful and wonderful.

I’m the feature reporter at KABB. My job is to tell the stories of the unsung heroes of San Antonio. I know there are so many more amazing, inspiring stories waiting to be told. So if you’re still reading this and you know someone or someplace or something that makes this city unique and beautiful, tell me about it. Email, call, whatever you have to do. I’m ready to hear your stories, San Antonio.
