First radio gig was in school at KUGR Pullman -- Wazzu's Wired Rock from '83-'86. Paid starting in August of '86 in Spokane first until 1993, then Tri-Cities. Yakima and back to Spokane, too. We rock out weekdays 3-7pm. I was born and raised in Yakima. I graduated from Carroll High School in 1983 and attended Washington State University. I have a special place in my heart for Pearl Jam and am a proud member of the 12th Man. I am a beaming father of two, a 20-year old son and my daughter is 16, both of whom I get to help navigate life, everyday. I'm very grateful for the blessings they bring as well as my partner in life and love for the past thirteen years. I am passionate about the arts, sports and travel -- both in the USA and abroad. It is my honor to help carry and pass the rock torch through the radio generations. It's a responsibility I do not take lightly. Thank you for rocking. Thank you for listening.
