Why I got into radio: Wanted to get paid to do something I already love to do, talk about and listen to music.

Hobbies: Movies, TV, Books
Strange Phobias: That I'll be kidnapped and made to ride shotgun in my own car. The kidnapper forgets to take my cellphone, so I pull it out from my pocket and hold it down between my body and the door of the car. I, for fear of death, can't look at my cellphone to dial, so I have to go stealth and dial 911 or text "help" just by the feel of the cellphone buttons. Then I realize I have a cell-phone with a flat touch screen and I'm screwed.
Favorite Movies: Jaws, Star Wars, The Crow, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Stripes, Animal House, Strange Brew
Best concerts I've attended:
- Fear Factory/Machine Head at Ryan's Ballroom in the early 2000's. Best energy I've ever felt at a show.
- 2nd row at Tool playing a theatre in Chicago
- Front row, right in front of Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue at the Resch Center
Random Radio Memory: Dimebag Darryl and Vinnie Paul, formerly of Pantera, came to the studio to promote their new band, DamagePlan. We did an interview with them on the air and we mentioned that we were hosting a local show that night at Ryan's Ballroom in Combined Locks. They said "We're In!" We all piled in their tour bus and pounded shots of Jagermeister on the way there. I could not believe this was happening. They checked out the band and signed autographs, did shots w/ listeners, etc. It was an incredible experience!
Death row meal: My dad's big family breakfast: eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, pancakes, extra sharp cheddar cheese, maple syrup, toast, milk and coffee.
