I grew up in Cerritos California, but I have escaped! I've had a desire to broadcast most all of my life. I'm an Army veteran and served in the European Theatre during the cold war and was there when the Berlin Wall fell and during Desert Storm while in the Infantry. I graduated from a private college in Washington state and lived in Cheyenne, Wyoming for over 11 years. I was the morning talk show host on AM 650 KGAB and also hosted "Across America" with Gary Freeman before that. I focus on community affairs, local politics, entertainment and trending technologies. I'm passionate about people and building relationships with them. Don't be surprised if you see me listening to old time radio's or talking with my ventriloquist dummies. I love the outdoors - especially snowmobiles, church and spending time with my wife Catherine and daughter Julia. Glad to be living in Presque Isle.
