You can watch Jeff every weekday morning on News Channel 3 in the Morning and News Channel 3 at Noon. He has been an anchor and reporter with KESQ-TV since June, 2000.

Here in the desert, the EMMY® Award winning reporter has covered everything from earthquakes, bears on the loose, power outages and flooding, to our seasonal wildfires, presidential visits and occasional sand storms. He also reported the deaths and funeral services of President Gerald R. Ford and Bob Hope, and was on the air during the first moments of the San Bernardino terror attack in 2015.

Jeff is originally from Camarillo, California. The University of Southern California graduate first worked in television news in Pocatello, Idaho then Green Bay, Wisconsin. He covered the devastating Northridge Earthquake in 1994 while working radio news in Santa Barbara.  He reported on nuclear waste trains, tornadoes and even escaped African Lions in Idaho. He also reported on blizzards in Wisconsin and the Green Bay Packers' 1997 and 1998 Super Bowl Championship seasons.

Jeff and his wife, Marian, stay active in a number of community programs. Jeff regularly reads to students, helps with the Tour de Palm Desert and serves with the California Desert Arts Council and the La Quinta Arts Foundation Board of Directors.

In his spare time, Jeff and family like to take in all the desert has to offer. He loves to hike the desert's many hillside trails, golf, shop and spend as much time as he can with his son Joshua, their dog and two cats.
