In 2004 Eyewitness News sent him to Boston to cover the Democratic National Convention. Then in 2005, he led coverage of Hurricane Rita live from Houston and Galveston.
Locally, Jeff has been out front with exclusive reports on several stories, including a state investigation into mysterious deaths during surgery at one of Manhattan's most prestigious hospitals.
During the past 13 years Jeff has worked as a main anchor and lead reporter for some of the most celebrated local news organizations in the country. Before joining Eyewitness News, Jeff worked at WBAL-TV in Baltimore, where his investigative reporting prompted a federal investigation into the mail order sale of oxycontin.
After a series of floods in Maryland trapped motorists in their cars, Jeff demonstrated how to get out of a sinking car alive. He was strapped into a submerged vehicle in a river, on his way out of the car he gave viewers tips on how to survive. His peers recognized Jeff for his outstanding work when he earned two Emmy nominations for reporting and an additional Emmy nomination for his work on the anchor desk.
Prior to Baltimore, Jeff worked as an anchor for the then top rated 5:30 and 6:30 weekday evening newscasts for the Fox affiliate in Miami. When federal agents seized Elian Gonzalez from his relatives' Little Havana home, Jeff led the coverage as the dramatic events of that day unfolded on live television.
But many Tri-State viewers remember Jeff from the syndicated national show "Everyday Living", which was a news program he co-hosted for the UPN network in 1996.
Jeff was raised in Fairfield County, Connecticut where he was an all conference football player and an all-state track athlete. He then moved on to Miami University of Ohio where he earned a football scholarship and was a starting wide receiver.
Jeff lives in Manhattan with his wife and daughter.
