Hometown: Westland, Mich.
Position: Managing Editor
Years with CM Life: 3 years
What does your desk do? I am essentially the news editors’ editor. I edit stories after they take the first look, and I make sure things run as smoothly as possible with them.
What was the first story you covered for CM Life? I did a story about Gov. Rick Synder when he visited Asia and announced a new business partnership that was going to bring jobs to mid-Michigan. It gave me my first chance to cover politics, and I loved it.
If a movie was made of your life, what genre would it be and who would play you? It would end up being a comedy because of the people I hang out with. I don’t know who would play me, but Morgan Freeman would definitely narrate it.
What’s the best part about working at CM Life? Just being involved and getting to meet these important and interesting people. It’s a unique opportunity.
If you had to eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, where would it be? It would have to be Red Robin. We need one in Mount Pleasant.
Who is the most influential person in your life? My dad, because he set the example for me. He taught me to never get too worried or worked up about anything, which is a really important tool in college.
