Hi there! Radio has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My first on-air performance was at the age of three on a jingle in Temple, Texas. From then on, despite a professional journey that has lead me through Theatre, TV, Media Research and more, Radio has always been my first professional love. I also enjoy, and am an advocate for, the arts in all its various forms. I grew up in a creative household, and I have natural attraction toward wordsmithery and creative endeavors. My basic life philosophy can be summed up in the words of the great Bill and Ted: “Be Excellent to Each Other.” In addition to classic rock and music, generally-speaking, I also dig writing, history, documentaries, films, good acting, conversation, kindness, animals, and basically most things. Wait.... Wait. There are a couple of things I don’t dig, like yogurt-covered raisins. Just no. Speaking of eating, I also like to cook and have a certificate in plant-based nutrition, but I'm a "selective omnivore." I’ve lived all over Texas, but after receiving my BA in Theatre and Communication from McMurry University, I came back home to East Texas. It’s an honor to share the day with you on Classic Rock, 96.1.
