Operations Manager for both Fun 107 and 1420 WBSM, I began my radio career in Boston as a 16-year-old intern for "Rock and Roll Hall of Famer" Dale Dorman. I cracked the mic for the first time on my 18th birthday as a freshman broadcaster at Syracuse University's legendary Z-89. I've hosted radio shows in Boston, Syracuse, Connecticut, and New Hampshire...and came to Fun 107 back in 1995. I've hung out with some of the world's biggest names, including Taylor Swift, Tom Brady, Rihanna, Pedro Martinez, P!NK, NKOTB, LL Cool J and Wyclef Jean. I have hosted live broadcasts from the Grammy Awards, Atlantis in the Bahamas, Universal Studios Florida and Red Sox Spring Training. But the most important live broadcast I've ever done was during one of my weekly Saturday Night Hotmixx shows from the Jukebox in New Bedford. That's where I met my wife, Cyndi. We now live in Mattapoisett, and are kept busy by our daughter, Reagan, and son, Matthew.
