I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to be a part of the team here at 101.3 TODAY’S KFDI! How did I get here. Here comes the short version! Born in England, moved to California when I was 7, grew up in Maine from about age 11 on! I was a commercial fisherman in Maine long before radio. I’ve worked on landscaping crews, dairy farms and in retail stores…..then one night, radio came up in discussion and I was off.  I’ve lived in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, Florida,  weeks in Monroe, Louisiana (but I don’t talk about that much…LOL), Virginia and now I’m here in Wichita where I have been since 2014 and I couldn’t be happier. Now for the fun stuff!

SOME FAVORITE ARTISTS: Luke Combs, Ian Munsik, Kenny Chesney, Lainey Wilson, Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, Chris Stapleton and Darius Rucker just to name a few.

PETS: Rhodesian Ridgeback (Silas); Cat (Maverick), Cat (Leia); Pitbull (Gimli) and Golden Doodle named KC in honor of the planes at McConnell)

HOBBIES: Cooking, Photography, Hiking/Walking, Movies, Travel, writing.

CRAZIEST RADIO STUNT: Jumped out of a plane….want to ride a bull and be in a Demo Derby

WHY I LOVE RADIO: I love what I do because I have met some amazing people as listeners over the years and have done some amazing things to raise money for charity and bring awareness to causes. I believe wholeheartedly in the work that St. Jude Children’s Hospital does. I ring bells for the Salvation Army. I donate blood and platelets on a regular basis. At the end of the day, I believe radio has the power to do amazing things within its own community… and I love being a part of that. I can’t imagine doing anything else! I hope to get to say hi to each and every one of you who have taken the time to read this. Thanks for listening!
