Mon-Fri: 3PM - 7PM

My passion for music and entertaining has taken me to more than a few cities over my career. I’m from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I grew up in a small town called Sussex, went to Arrowhead High School in Hartland, and studied communications at the University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse. That’s where it all started. Wisconsin to San Diego, California. San Diego to Los Angeles. LA to San Antonio. (long story) San Antonio back to San Diego. And finally San Diego to Phoenix in 1998. While my journey has many stories both good and not so good, what I am most proud of was marrying my best friend, Sandra in 1995. She is my rock and has put up with all of the moving! We have two beautiful girls. Mia is a Freshman at ASU, and Sofia is a Freshman at Sunnyslope High School. They get their smarts from their mother. (and their looks too) My family means the world to me.

When I’m not with them- I am all about my career. Music and entertainment. I started in this crazy business back in 1985 and I have never looked back. I knew this was what I wanted to do. I’m actually living my dream job! I’m very lucky. This platform also gives me the incredible opportunity to give back to the community. I am involved with the Special Olympics, the Foundation for Blind Children, The American Cancer Society, PCH, and the Purple Society to name a few.

On my show, you will get great music. Music that I grew up with. Music I am passionate about. Many of the songs I am playing now, were songs and artists that were brand new when I was starting out in radio. It’s come full circle, and when I play these songs- they mean so much. You’ll get “THE REWIND” at 5pm each day which is mini-countdown of songs from the 80’s and 90’s. At 6pm, I have DJ Pauly come in and mix some of those incredible songs for your ride home in a feature we call “THE SAFETY DANCE”. On Sunday night, I get to create my favorite show, “THE 2ND WAVE”. It’s 2 hours of requests of the most awesome NEW WAVE songs. Love doing that show. Here on KOOL, EVERY SONG HAS A STORY. Not just from the artist, but from my experiences, and from YOUR experiences! Call me sometime, and tell me your stories. I would love to hear them.
