Yo-sem-i-tee

Posted by in Weekly Life

One thing we love about the Bay Area is that there’s so much stuff to do! (It’s also one of the reasons I haven’t updated this in a while…*cough*) A few weeks ago, Brady and I drove out to the Central Valley to visit one of his college buddies and go to Yosemite national park. His friend lives about halfway between our house and the park, so we drove to his house, spent the night, then drove into the park the next day. It was great, because we had our…read more

This is how I work it out.

Posted by in Weekly Life

I found this recently… Back in January I got to have a little more fun with my dear anchors. We did a fitness segment, and the trainer was supposed to bring one of her students to demonstrate the exercises. That didn’t happen, so the fearless producer stepped in to help. (Okay, secretly, I sometimes wish I was a fitness model…)   Video Courtesy of KSL.com

The Great Escape

Posted by in Weekly Life

This week we launched a series on our morning show called “The Great Escape.” Every Friday for the next three weeks, KSL 5 Today goes on the road to a different quadrant of the state, to spotlight the lesser known activities that area has to offer. This week: Northeastern Utah. I was the field producer for this adventure. I traveled out with anchor Scott Haws and crew man/camera operator Jeff Smith. We met up with the rest of our production team at Flaming Gorge, in a place called Red Canyon….read more

Bracketology

Posted by in Weekly Life

Bracketology – “the process of predicting the field of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, named as such because it is commonly used to fill in tournament brackets for the postseason… “A bracketologist’s credibility is judged on how many teams he predicts correctly being in the tournament and the average difference between the bracketologist’s projected seed and the actual seed assigned by the NCAA Selection Committee.” And according to the great Wikipedia…apparently I’m good at it so far. I’ve never been a huge college basketball fan, and I’ve never followed the NCAA…read more

Just keep running…

Posted by in Weekly Life

Brady and I have a thing for running. I’m not good at it. I’m not even fast…and it’s hard to say that I enjoy the act itself. But I’m addicted to the after-effect, the adrenaline rush from crossing the finish line, the endorphins, the way my legs feel at the end of 5, 10, or 26.2 miles under the beating sun. I guess you could say it’s my drug of choice. That being said, we decided to tackle the 2010 St. George Marathon…and the months of training that necessarily precede…read more

Go Jazz Go!

Posted by in Weekly Life

Because Brady and Kyle won the audience choice award at the Crexendo competition…we got tickets to the Jazz’s first playoff game at home, against the Denver Nuggets. We weren’t clear up in the nosebleed section, either. How about the 13TH ROW? Kyle and Whitney were there too, of course…and yes, we all wore our NoteSync shirts. That’s the view from our seats, and I didn’t even have to use the zoom on my camera! I’ve been to a few Jazz games before, but never a playoff game, and NEVER closer…read more

NoteSync

Posted by in Major Events, Weekly Life

Brady and his friend Kyle won the Crexendo Online Marketing competition a couple weeks ago. (I know, I’ve killed all the suspense. But since it happened a couple weeks ago…most of you who care to read this probably already know. Continue reading if you wish.) It all started over Christmas break, when Brady got an idea: “Taking notes should be simpler.” (insert Windows 7 commercial here.) He found a little desktop app called Notational Velocity and loved it, but it was only available for Mac users. And since Brady is…read more

It’s like walking…but on snow.

Posted by in Weekly Life

Running is cold. Biking is dangerous. Skiing is expensive. Let’s face it…finding the perfect winter sport can be tough. And while it’s important to stay fit during the more frigid parts of the year, sometimes the gym just gets a little too been-there-done-that. So Brady and I picked up snowshoeing. Actually, I’ve had my own snowshoes for a while, but for Christmas this year, Brady got a pair so we could go together. It’s a great workout…and a way for us to enjoy the wintry outdoors without having to pay…read more

Nightside

Posted by in Weekly Life

Remember when you were young and you thought it was cool to stay up all night at slumber parties? Well, I get to do that EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. (minus the slumber parties.) Now that I’ve got you fuming with jealousy…let me explain a little bit about my job. I work as a producer on KSL’s morning news (watch it). The show starts at 5 a.m. and ends at 7. Which means my shift starts at 11pm the night before. Awesome, right? Actually, I must say it’s been better than I…read more
