I’m a numbers nerd. I love using data to explain the world around us. Mix that with my background in psychology, and you start to get the stories that reveal little truths of human behavior: why people do what they do, and how they plan to act for a better future.

Right now, I tell these stories in Seattle for KIRO 7. Before that, I reported and anchored for WREG in Memphis and KXXV in Killeen, TX.

The moment breaking news happens, I feel the adrenaline rush of wanting to be first and to be right. Sometimes the crime or accident is intense, and I’m thankful for my background in psychology when I speak to people who are probably in shock and pain.

Then when the dust clears, I like having the opportunity to look at the more deeply-rooted problems that create the crime we see.
