I'm originally from Chicago but moved to the Panhandle in 1986. I graduated from Canyon High School and went on to Amarillo College where Jamey Karr taught me all I know about radio! I've been in the business for 17 years and hope for many more. I love music, baseball and Investigation Discovery Channel. I have one daughter, Faith (21), 2 dogs (Cinnamon and Chipper who are Puggles) and Twilight the cat.
