About Gus

I am currently a news producer at WGME and WPFO. I produce a half-hour show at 4:30 a.m. and a full-hour show at 7:00 a.m.


Born and raised in Atlanta, Ga., I developed an interest in journalism while attending Holy Innocents' Episcopal School in Sandy Springs. In May 2015, I graduated from HIES after taking three years of broadcast journalism courses. The following fall, I began my first term at Washington and Lee University pursuing a bachelor's degree in journalism and global politics.

At W&L, I took a multitude of journalism courses including beat reporting (covering politics and elections), digital journalism, reporting on education, anchoring, editing for print and online media, producing broadcasts, social media and in-depth reporting (business).

Outside of the classroom, I completed two journalism internships. In the summer of 2017, I wrote for the Northside Neighbor, a local paper in the northwest region of Atlanta, Ga. The following summer, I worked for the Roanoke Times in Roanoke, Va.


In April 2019, I won a Society of Professional Journalists Mark of Excellence Award for a feature story I wrote while working at the Roanoke Times. Between the two internships and my work at the Rockbridge Report, I have experience covering a variety of beats including politics, local government, business and education.

I graduated from W&L in May 2019.
