I caught the radio bug early. When I was five years old, I put on my dad’s headphones, grabbed a toilet paper tube, and pretended to “be the man on the radio.” According to my mother, that’s what I told people I wanted to be when I grew up.

Then, when I went into Plaza Junior High School, they had a radio and TV department. Long live WPJH! Needless to say, I was hooked.

I started my career as a part-time jock at WNVZ (Z104)/Norfolk, VA. I was the final evening air talent for WVKL (Kool 95.7). I also was a part-time on-air talent for WWVZ/WWZZ (Z104) in Washington, D.C. from 2002-2003. In 2003, I moved to the Washington, D.C. area, where I worked for CBS Radio for nearly 10 years.

After a brief period at WFLS in Fredericksburg, VA, missing my hometown, I moved back to Hampton Roads back in 2014. I returned to the company where it all started for me, Max Media, in February 2015.

I love the Washington Commanders, NASCAR, Langley Speedway, and photography.
