On the weekends, I love to: Work! Since I'm a weekend anchor, I work Saturdays and Sundays.  My days off are during the week--and I'll either be catching up on my DVR, relaxing or hitting the gym.

My favorite kind of music is: A little bit of everything, as long as it sounds good.

My favorite food is: Almost anything Italian, but a weakness for good ol' Southern food.

Hidden Talents: I have a photographic memory. It's a gift and a curse.

Hobbies: Movies, technology and photography.

Most Memorable Story:  I don't really have one that I could call my 'most memorable', but there are ones that do stick out more than others.  Usually, anything involving natural disasters or animals sticks out.
