The day starts bright and early by getting my daughter ready for school.
Oh yes, that also includes feeding my "other child," Dr. Poohs, our 12-year-old cat.
Since my wife owns her own accounting business, she leaves before the sun comes up. That makes me Mr. Mom most mornings to cook up breakfast.
And off to school we go!
Katelyn wanted to take this picture. Just don't tell my boss she was using the expensive camera. Oh wait...
I normally run errands in the morning and then come home to change for the gym. A protein shake before is a must.
Work never stops with the fancy phones now. I'm always checking e-mails, making phone calls, texting, Facebook, Twitter, etc. I have to make sure we don't miss a big story.
I never get tired of this part of my day. I'm headed to the gym and crossing over the beautiful views near the beach.
When I'm not working, I'm usually on Miami Beach with the family or headed to the gym daily before work.
A big "hello" to the good people at Equinox gym on Miami Beach. I decompress while training, showering and shaving. Gets me ready for the work day.
After lunch and picking up my daughter from school comes the hardest part of my day: picking out what to wear to work.
We men don't always know how to get the right combinations.
Okay, this looks like it'll work. I always try to mix and match. Viewers normally let me know if they don't like something.
Around 3 o'clock on days that I anchor, it's time to enter the one and only Local 10.
My first task is to catch up on e-mails I didn't get to earlier and checking out what the 6 o'clock show is looking like.
Then I update my Facebook and Twitter. You can always find me on there by searching my name. The more friends the better.
I also update my blog with sports stories and my opinion on things going on in the sports world. You can find it on Local10.com, under the sports section.
Time to make some calls to verify stories, set up stories or just check in on my daughter.
Our new building has some fancy computer editing machines. I've always enjoyed editing my own stories.
This is how I also look at the highlights that will go on the newscast beforehand.
Now comes the fun part, or not! Yes, we do wear make-up. Trust me, you don't want to see me in HD without make-up.
No make-up people needed. I've learned from the best, like Dwight Lauderdale. The man knew how to put on make-up.
A little powder and I'm all set for the show. Yes, you can go ahead and laugh at me. I would too.
After checking up on scripts and any final changes, it's showtime!
This is what I walk into everyday at 6 and 11. It's a pretty cool studio.
All the stories I wrote earlier are now in the prompter and ready for me to read.
Yes, I sometimes like to go casual. Some sneakers to keep it loose. Some days I wear a full suit and dress shoes, but this just feels better.
On to the fun with Calvin and Laurie. They really are a blast to work with. We're always laughing when off camera.
On slow days, I head home to cook up a quick dinner with the family.
My wife and I enjoy a nice meal with our daughter and get ready to put her to bed.
Of course, not before catching some TV with my baby. She has turned the living room into a playroom.
It's Dora the Explorer or SpongeBob on the agenda. I get enough sports at work, so this is a nice change.
Back I go to Local 10 to get ready for the 11 o'clock news.
The newsroom looks a lot calmer at night, but we're all still working hard.
We're a close-knit group. Here I am discussing some things with one of our great editors, Errol.
Not a bad job. I get paid to watch sports on most nights. I try and keep up with the stories for the news so I can easily write them.
Here is how a story looks in script mode. That's exactly what will transfer over to the prompter.
Of course, I do find time to catch up on some of my favorite shows, like "Dancing with the Stars." You know you watch it too!
Finally, after another good show is done, it's time to say goodbye.
We'll do it all over again tomorrow.
