I was born and raised in Portland, OR, but have worked in Eugene, OR and South Florida before making my way to The Buzz Adams Morning Show in Texas. I've worked mainly in the rock format, but have done things in news and even country. I'm a jock and nerd wrapped up in one. I make sure to hit up the comic shop weekly and also follow all my sports teams with a passion. (New England Patriots, Portland Trail Blazers, Minnesota Twins, Portland Timbers, Oregon Ducks) Video games, movies, and TV shows are also a big part of how I spend my time, but not as much as they used to be, or would like them to be.
