I was born in Boston and raised in San Jose. I lived in New Orleans for a year or two before settling in Lake Charles in 1982. I am happily married with two beautiful children and a graduate of Lake Charles-Boston High School and Delta School of Business. I’ve been holding down Middays on the radio since 1991. I got my first gig at KXZZ. I was a member of the original and very first air-staff at KZWA before joining the staff here at KJMH 107 Jamz. I’ve been lucky enough to have had two syndicated shows in my career. I did this, all while maintaining a live show here in Lake Charles. In all, I’ve been a member of the 107 Jamz staff since we first went on the air on August 7, 2000. I am grateful to have had such longevity in a career I love so much.
