I was the first reporter on scene when a man opened fire on the subway. I called sources in the Police Department and Fire Department and News4 was first with details and continued to break details on the story throughout the course of the investigation

Traveled to Buffalo, NY for two days of live coverage of the shooting at Tops supermarket and the visit of President Joe Biden.
In 2019, while at NY1, I embedded for weeks at the NYPD’s Staten Island Narcotics Division for a documentary on the opioid crisis. There, I got to know the detectives involved in ridding Staten Island of heroin, which has resulted in hundreds of overdoses in the borough.
In 2021, when a narcotics detective was shot in the line of duty, I rushed to the scene and learned it was Dominic Libretti whom I’d profiled in the documentary. Weeks later, he granted me his first and only interview.
As part of WNBC-TV’s Beyond the Name project commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks, I profiled Capt. Vernon Richard—the only Black officer to die that day.
I was the lead live reporter during the essential workers parade in Lower Manhattan. My grandfather spent 30 years as a conductor and I brought his hat with me as a nod to the MTA workers who kept the city moving throughout the pandemic.
Jersey Street is among the most dangerous on Staten Island. In 2018, a woman standing at a bus stop was killed during a shootout amongst gangs. In 2021, gang members opened fire into a beauty salon.
In August 2022, I went out with NYPD Staten Island Violent Crimes Squad as they arrested 15 gangmembers.
I was tipped off to a dog hoarding situation in Brooklyn, when I arrived the NYPD Animal Cruelty Squad took into custody a man who let his 20 dogs live in squalor.
Asked by MSNBC to cover the shooting in Times Square for the network’s live morning programming.
