After touring 7 years as a musician and screaming at the TV as a "feature" sports analyst on my couch, I decided I was ready for radio. I've spent 8 years working as a sports journalist for the Bay Area News Group in the only bay worthy of the name - San Francisco. In that time I focused heavily on the local sports and art/music scene in Oakland, CA. All I can say is it's about time the "Dubs" made their mark with the title in 2015 and their historic start so far in the '15-'16 season. J I moved to Belton in Central Texas in 2015, lived right by the lake and I loved it. I got my start on the air as "Mr. Trendy" - talking about what was hot and happenin' in Central Texas and moved up to a few air shifts on K107 Classic Hits as well as New Country US 105. I decided to keep heading East and landed in Tyler where I hope I can learn and become a part of this great community as a the DME at Townsquare Media.
