I was born right here in Temple, TX. I grew up in Troy, and got into local radio a month after graduating from Troy High School in 2005. I've been here ever since. Growing up, I listened to classic rock, hip-hop, country, and top 40 radio. I'd describe my musical tastes as "eclectic", since I'll listen to just about anything that suits my current mood. I'm really into Classic Rock, 80's music, Dream Pop, and Synthwave. I love riffing on movies with friends (too much Mystery Science Theater 3000 as a kid), reading, writing, and playing fetch with my pudgy dog, Leela. I'm also into classic gaming, so when I'm not working or watching movies, you'll see me roaming the corridors in Doom or bombing some Dodongos in Zelda.
