Investigative reporter – WPRI-TV CBS 12/WNAC-TV Fox 64 (Lin Media)
Why did you select your profession?
Some guy named Jack White made it look really cool. Also: I truly enjoy the craft of writing and telling people’s stories.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?
Always respect when you’re doing a story on someone – good or bad – it’s an important moment in that person’s life.
What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
Stop wearing that shirt. It looks so 1996. Be dedicated and aggressive, but don’t be in such a rush. Find a woman named Melissa Hamel; you’re going to marry her so just cut to the chase and enjoy your time together more. And buy Apple stock.
What one thing in your professional life would you like a do-over on?
I called a candidate the wrong name in a live, televised (and unfortunately highly rated) gubernatorial debate I was moderating in 2010. •
