Met and married my sweetheart, Whitney here in Charleston. We love getting to know the city we now call home. Our small family also includes a cat, which I'm learning to love too. My parents still live in Thomasville, GA. My brother, his wife, and my niece and nephew live in Birmingham, AL.

Favorite books:

Likes best about the Lowcountry:

I'm a history buff and this is a great area to explore. It's also great for the southern hospitality, and the food. Coming from Florida, I'm also a big fan of the weather too.

Most interesting assignment:

I spent a week on the road in Pensacola, Florida, covering the first waves of oil coming on Florida shores after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Most interesting interview:

I did an exclusive interview in Florida with a former city manager and his porn star wife. He was fired because of his wife's occupation.
