When friends come to visit New Orleans, the first place I take them is … to eat.

On Friday & Saturday nights you’ll find me … prepping to go fishing.

I’m known around the newsroom for … snacks in my desk.

A TV moment I’d like to forget is … a plethora of mispronunciations.

The most important lesson I’ve learned through my work as a journalist is … to be sensitive to differences of opinion…sometimes, they’re just different. Not right or wrong, but different.

I give back to my community by … attempting to be as generous as possible with blessings afforded me.

If I had the time I’d like to … fish more.

My favorite Saints player is … Steve Gleason.

My best date went like this … as long as the wife is happy afterwards then it was a good date!
