Looking back, I had quite a remarkable childhood. Too bad I wasn’t old enough to fully appreciate it. I grew up in Malibu, California. My father was a screenwriter and had some very successful shows such as “Hogan’s Heroes“, so he was able to afford a house on the beach. Now as an adult, when I return to the spot we lived, I think to myself  “Wow, how lucky were we?.”

Malibu is home to many celebrities, and I went to school with some including: Charlie Sheen, Rob Lowe, Sean Penn, and several others. Growing up in a show business environment gave me the acting bug. So after college, I tried my hand at it. I did some bit parts in both film and television.

I then decided to focus full attention on my field of study: Broadcast Journalism. After a few years of working at some Los Angeles cable television stations, I received my first affiliate job as a morning anchor in Savannah, Georgia. I then went on to anchor and report in Santa Fe and Albuquerque New Mexico, Oklahoma City, Kansas City, Mo. and finally Wichita, Kansas. I have been in Wichita since 2004.

I worked in news in Wichita full time until early 2010. My wife and I bought a business, The Cleaning Authority, a franchise based in Columbia Maryland, and I decided to leave news and devote myself to our new adventure. Since that time, I have launched two other businesses: MOOYAH Burgers, a better burger franchise based out of Dallas, and Inner City Peace Fashions, a clothing line designed to call attention to bettering America’s inner cities. I also do voice over and on camera work for commercials and other projects.

I really enjoy living in Wichita. It is a great place to raise a family. My beautiful wife Jennifer and I have two children. I also have three “adopted” sons who I met through the Big Brother program several years ago while living in Kansas City.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my website. Please contact me with any questions.
