.

I am 52 years-old... I initially started working at WTVY-TV in 1992 when the station was located at its old studios in Webb, Alabama. I initially started as the northwest Florida bureau chief based in Marianna. I left in 2009 and joined the Walton county, Florida sheriff's office where I worked for a year as their public information officer. I missed the Wiregrass and reporting. The folks at channel 4 allowed me back, and I'm grateful for that...

I have worked as a TV journalist in the tri-states area since 1979. over the years, I have worked at both network affiliates in Panama City as well. that includes our sister station WJHG-TV, (ch.7). I started with film and now have moved into digital video. the rapid changes in technology have been unbelievable.....

When not working, I enjoy exercise. that namely involves running and weight-lifting... as many in the south,I'm a football addict. It can be high school, college, or the pros'... as a Univ. of Florida grad., "it's all for the Gators, stand-up and holler!!!!. I'm also an NFL Miami Dolphin fan...

I'm not much for modern media... I enjoy watching the movie-era from the 1930's through the 70's... Jack Nicholson is my favorite actor, and his 1974 film "China Town" directed by Roman Polanski is the finest film ever made in my estimation.

I enjoy meeting the folks across the WTVY-TV viewing area. My goal everyday is to bring them stories, and spot news items that I believe they'll find interesting... WTVY is truly a beacon of information in a noisy media field of internet sites, blogs, and other media outlets...
