I love people and I love what I do. Whether I am at a concert, a local fundraiser or a 'live on location' broadcast I get to meet listeners. I am also a huge music fan and I am crazy about the new music as well as the old classics. One of the blessings of the morning show is talking to you and learning the needs of our community. When I'm not at the radio station, I enjoy spending my free time with my beautiful wife, my five wonderful daughters and three awesome sons. I've been a Boy Scout all my life, therefore I believe we all need to spend more time in the great outdoors camping and enjoying quality time together. Mostly though, I am the happiest when I'm on the radio.
