I grew up in northern New Jersey (Please don't hold that against me!) and graduated from Rutgers University. My radio journey has taken me from NJ to Manchester, NH to Portland, ME, and now Albany here in beautiful Upstate New York. I've been married to my better half Stacy for a decade we have 3 beautiful children. My passions? Music, music, and music. I have been playing guitar since I was 10 and love everything country music has to offer: great songs, great musicians, and great times.
