About Me

I moved back to Little Rock from Atlanta about a year ago. I came home to be closer to my family and took a job as the special projects editor and promotions producer at KARK, the NBC station in Little Rock. Well, Nexstar the parent company bought the Fox station here and merged the two newsrooms and in the process laid off 25 people. I was one of them, so I find myself looking for a job again.

Prior to moving, I was the Chief Editor at WGCL in Atlanta. I have over 15 years experience in television production as an editor, producer and videographer.
