I was born and raised in SWLA. I grew up in Moss Bluff and graduated from Sam Houston High and McNeese. I love the culture of our amazing area, from the food and music to the southern hospitality! As Jim Harbaugh says, “Who has it better than us? NOOOOBODY!” Music is my muse and radio is my passion. My love affair with radio began at the wee age of 8 and, to this day, I don’t feel comfortable unless a mic is in front of me and the speakers are blasting. I started as an intern in 2001, and the rest is history! My wife, Amanda, grew up in Westlake, and both of our families have resided here their whole lives. We have 2 kids, Elijah and Khloe, who will grow up and share the same great experiences we did as children. I am very excited to share my radio journey with you.
