"I work in the greatest and fastest growing city in Ohio! Columbus is a great town with tons of untold stories. As a 3 year staff photographer for WBNS 10TV, I've had the amazing privilege to dig up these gems and showcase them to our Central Ohio audience. My approach to every day, and every story, is with the thought that everyone has a story, no matter how large or small. We, as story tellers, have the best jobs in the world."
"Dayton, my hometown, is where the television bug bit me, hard. Alongside some of the best journalists I know, and many who I grew up watching, WHIO become my first TV family. I started as a sports intern, made my way to a part time editor, then worked my way up to become a staff photographer." Before life at 10TV, Andy was the Chief Photographer for their since deceased sister station, The Ohio News Network (ONN) for the better part of 4 years before transitioning to WBNS.
