Why I am a broadcaster: One of my favorite aspects of being in television is having the opportunity to deal with, and learn about, the most interesting issues of our time. I thoroughly enjoy using my creative skills to tell CTV viewers about them. If you're talking about it around the coffee shop or water cooler, that's the kind of thing I'm dealing with.

About Me: I cook an awesome Thai chicken. I can even recommend a wine for it.
