“I love being out on the streets and telling the stories of our viewers,” he said. “It feels great at the end of the day when you tell a story that can help someone or make a difference in someone’s life. I am excited to be back in Philadelphia. I was born here, and both my parents grew up in the city. My dad went to Overbrook High school, with my mother, and Temple University. I have always appreciated the tough, hard-working values associated with the city.”
One of the most memorable stories he has covered while working as a journalist was when he covered India Williams, a seven-year-old victim of gun violence who ended up paralyzed from the waist down.
