 I’ve always been enamored by the allure of radio. Maybe it was because my father worked in radio. Maybe it was the personal connection I felt with the hosts on the microphone. Whatever it was, I’ve been hooked on it for as long as I can remember. From Sports Talk, to Public Radio storytelling, to Alternative Rock I always found something different about each format that I appreciate. 

 As a student at Onondaga Community College in 2008 I had the opportunity to intern with Gomez and Dave on TK99 and I learned so much about the craft of putting together a successful morning show. I finished up my Radio Production degree at SUNY Fredonia, as an active member of their student radio program, hosting a weekly sports talk show.

 In 2011 I started working for the Mars Hill Network in Syracuse as their Morning Show Sports Announcer and ended up working as their Traffic Manager. Eventually I would transition into their Program Director and after nearly six years at the network I accepted a position with WAER. As someone who has enjoyed storytelling podcasts for years joining WAER has been a true pleasure. The opportunity to share stories from members of a community that has been my home for nearly my entire life was what drew me to WAER. 

  When I’m not poking around the radio station I enjoy taking day trips with my wife Chelsea and our son Jack.
