It’s your Buddy Russ! I now present to you my life summed up in a website bio. Proudly born and raised in SWLA, I graduated from Barbe High School in 2001. Go Bucs! I did try college a few times - five times, to be exact. I just tell everyone I have a well-rounded education. I became a DJ in middle school in order to get into the school dances for free. Fast forward a few years, and you’ll realize my employment record has a much A.D.D. as my actual personality. I’ve worked at Putt Putt, as a mechanic, a tow truck driver assistant, a bartender, a waiter, an Entertainment Manager at a local casino resort, and even a tire salesman. Guess all that was missing was to be a radio DJ! My passion for radio started at ten years old, and I am living out my childhood dream each and every day. I am the VP of the Seven Slot Society of SWLA and love helping others in need around the community.
