Previous Work Experience: KTVZ in Bend, Oregon; KTAB in Abilene, Texas; KTUL in Tulsa, Oklahoma; WEWS in Cleveland, Ohio; KXAS in Dallas, Texas

Joined News 5: The first time -- August 2014. The return -- August 2017.

Most Memorable Stories: Cavs winning the NBA Finals! Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Role Models: My parents, Diane Sawyer, Christiane Amanpour

Favorite Shows: Jeopardy! and the Simpsons

Favorite Foods: Pizza, Dr. Pepper, and milkshakes in no particular order.

Family: It's a big one — two incredible parents, four brothers, three sisters-in-law, two adorable nieces, a funny nephew, and one amazing husband. 

Something people don’t know about me: I was born in India, but my name is Iranian -- Homa means a powerful mythological bird in Persian.

What I like best about NE Ohio: Lake Erie sunsets and the people. When I moved here the first time, I didn't know a single soul in Cleveland. It didn't take long for that to change. I moved back because I fell in love with the city, the people, and News 5 -- and couldn't stay away. I reserve the right to complain about harsh winters, however.

You’re most likely to see me around town: hiking in the MetroParks, eating queso at Barrio, or trying to find the best milkshakes in town.
