What is your favorite part about living in Madison?

The diversity in all respects. And in my experience, the people are the most open, accepting and respectful I have ever encountered.

What is the biggest news story that you’ve covered?

Pope John Paul II visit to St. Louis, MO in 1999.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Depends on the day and which way the wind blows. Sometimes get in a nap, visit friends, spend time with family, or go someplace alone and just “be”.

What is your family life like? Significant other, married, kids?

Married, two kids and a cat.

What is your favorite kind of ice cream?

Coffee heath bar crunch. Closely followed by cookies and cream if the cookies are in big chunks.

What is your favorite place to vacation?

Fiji. I’ve never been there. But if i did go, it would be my favorite.

Who is your hero and why?

My son, Gio. He can and has endured just about everything. He is a living example of strength and love.

What was your favorite band when you were in high school?

Duran Duran.

What is your favorite sport to play or watch?


If you could possess one superhuman power, what would it be?

Toss up between being super fast like “dash” from the movie ‘The Incredibles’, and being invisible with force field capabilities like “violet” also from ‘The Incredibles.’ Yes, I know children’s movies very, very well.

What are you really bad at that you’d love to be great at?

Singing and camping. And not at the same time.

What is your most memorable travel experience?

My trip to Australia for my cousin’s wedding.
