I celebrated 22 years in radio just this past May and I do mean celebrate because it has been one the most rewarding things I have ever done in my life. In that 22 years I have worked with some of the most amazing talent, made lasting friendships, met my wife Donna and received so much more than I could ever give back.
One of the biggest blessings I have been given in my years is meeting and interacting with listeners. I truly enjoy trying to inform and entertain people. I know that I need music and laughter in my life and try to provide it for you as well.
All of my career has been spent in two places, the first being North Carolina, my home state, and my second home of Florida. First in Melbourne and now Orlando.
When I am not working I am watching television (man I need to find a hobby) I enjoy working out, going to the movies, spending time with the dogs Jack and JD (this is starting to sound like a personal ad) and long walks on the beach (not really)!
