About Gus

I am currently a news producer at WGME in Portland, Maine. I produce the 6 A.M. newscast.


Born and raised in Atlanta, Ga., I developed an interest in journalism while attending Holy Innocents' Episcopal School (HIES). 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 (W&L) 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.

I graduated from W&L in May 2019.

In October of 2019, I began working at WGME. Until August, I was responsible for the 4:30 and 7:00 A.M. newscasts. Currently, I am responsible for the 6 A.M. newscast. I have also produced the 5 A.M., 5 P.M., 6 P.M., 7 P.M., 10 P.M. and 11 P.M. newscasts.
