Prior to returning home to Philadelphia, Jeff spent five years in Atlanta as an investigative reporter for CBS46 (WGCL-TV). He also worked as a consumer investigative reporter for WBRE in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, and as a senior correspondent and documentary producer for PBS39 (WLVT) in Bethlehem.
Throughout his career, Jeff has won five regional Emmy awards for his work, including one for a hidden camera investigation that exposed a company selling used mattresses as new. As a result, state and federal regulatory agencies took action against the company and new legislation was proposed to protect consumers. He was also honored for his year-long investigation into a modular home dealer in northeastern Pennsylvania which led to the owner's arrest.
While working in the Lehigh Valley, Jeff produced local history documentaries on various topics, including the now defunct Hess Brothers Department Store, Bethlehem Steel and New Hope, Pennsylvania.
A native of Bucks County, Jeff grew up watching Action News and recalls running through his neighborhood in Levittown to catch a glimpse of the news van. A graduate of Bishop Egan High School and the University of Scranton, Jeff started his broadcasting career at 6abc Action News as a summer intern. Returning as a reporter fulfills a dream he's had since grade school.
When he's not working, Jeff enjoys hiking with his family, taking boot camp classes and traveling.
Having adopted his son from foster care, Jeff is also an advocate for older child adoption.
