Born and raised in a little town called Westerlo, NY. Being brought up on the top of the Helderberg Mountains I endured many things. Hillbilly's, loud trucks, the smell of fresh cow manure and of course boredom. So I got my act together and wandered off the mountain into the big city. Took up a love for radio and the rest is history. A few things about me: -I'm a hot dog connoisseur. You need to know the best topping for a hot dog, I got your back. -Favorite band is Black Sabbath. Both the Ozzy and Dio years. Anything after that is just weird.
