My journalism experience comes from my time with Nexstar Media Group station WVLA NBC Local 33/WGMB Fox 44 News in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. There, I served as photojournalist and production assistant, executing those teachings as host and feature reporter for “MyScene TV: Louisiana,” and later “This is Houston,” a 12-part web series highlighting business and entertainment in the Space City.
“This is Houston” is a spin-off of my blog of the same name.
