Charlottesville, Va.

CJ joined the NBC 29 team in August of 2019 after serving as editor-in-chief of HN Entertainment, an online media outlet dedicated to covering breaking entertainment news.

During his seven years there, he directed HN’s on-site coverage of events like San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic-Con, and major film premieres. He also interviewed actors, directors, screenwriters and more members from all facets of the entertainment industry.

He graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2015 (Go Rams!) with a major in broadcast journalism and a minor in history. While there, he wrote for the sports section of VCU’s award-winning student newspaper 'The Commonwealth Times,' covering men’s and women’s basketball and soccer.

CJ was born in Raleigh, North Carolina but raised around the world, living in N’Djamena, T’Chad; Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Stuttgart, Germany; and Lorton, Virginia, instilling a life-long love of travel and an inquisitive appetite.

When he’s not at work, you can find him reading, running, doing a crossword, or cheering on any and all D.C. sports teams (even if they only break his heart).
