I’ve been in radio since I was a senior in High School. Once I got started, I knew that this is what I wanted to do. I’ve worked in some wonderful places, like Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Nashville, and even Sturgeon Bay/Door County in Wisconsin. And, some not so wonderful places like…well, let’s just say they weren’t my favorites.
My wife Valerie and I have been married since 1988, and we have two awesome kids, Kevin and Kayla. Kevin is married to an incredible person, Veronica. And, Kayla is married to Godly man, Will. Kayla and Will are also parents to my first Grandchild, Judah!! Being in radio has taken us all over the United States, but I’ve also been blessed to go on some amazing mission trips through radio. Places like Hong Kong/Guangzhou/Guilin in China, and Matamoros, Mexico. When I’m away from the station, I enjoy watching sports, playing Fantasy Football (though I’m not very good at it), and Valerie and I love to get away on what we call “Empty Nest Adventures”. Our “Empty Next Adventures” could be as simple as going to the movies, or a weekend getaway to places like Boston, or New York City, or once upon a time we traveled to Chicago and had a blast! Now we live here! How crazy is that?
I’ve had many friends over that years that worked at Shine.FM – Johnathan, Kurt, Justin, and Jeff to name a few, and I’ve heard great things about the area and Shine’s listeners. And now, I count it a privilege to be a part of this team!
