About Me


The Short Story

I’m the tech reporter for KTLA-TV Channel 5 in Los Angeles. You can catch me weekdays on the Morning News, usually around 5:15 AM, 7:50 AM and 9:30 AM. Yes, I wake up really early – out of bed by about 3 AM most days. It’s a labor of love for sure.

My “Tech Report” is also syndicated on various TV stations across the country – you can catch my segment on newscasts from New York to San Francisco, Houston to San Diego and lots of places in between.

I’ve been a news reporter for over a decade and have been into technology all my life. I remember the excitement of buying my first computer (a 386SX-16) and was also a “forum” leader on CompuServe as a teen.
