When I was a little kid I wanted to be either an astronaut or a radio personality, which shows the importance of having a quality fallback plan. I’m a Nashville, TN native who grew up listening to the radio and loving the connection I felt with the people talking on the other side of the mic. That eventually led me to college radio and six years on the air in beautiful Bowling Green, KY – home of the Chevy Corvette. My fiancée and I love Minor League Baseball games, exploring new cuisines, and our cat, Anya. We spent our year before moving to the Capital Region traveling the US and Europe, and we’re thrilled to unpack our suitcases here in New York! I can talk with you endlessly about Anthony Bourdain and Mothman, and restaurant recommendations are my favorite way to get to know someone.
