How I Got Here
Born and raised in South Jersey, I was going to school -- shout out to EKU, BCC, Greenville Tech, and Temple University -- for social work & psychology and I hated it. I had my quarter life crisis in '07 (in Greenville, SC) and after moving back to NJ, I realized that while I have no musical capabilities, I could actually work in a career that was surrounded by my biggest passion.
I started at Z889, landed my first Morning gig at Live 95.9 (MA, 2012), spent 4 years on Mornings with Eagle 97.7 (Delaware, 2013-2017), a year and a half at as APD/Midday jock on Q93.5 (Columbia, SC 2017-2018), and now you can find me as Morning Co-Host on 93.1 The Wolf in Greensboro-Winston Salem, NC.
Inspired by Derek Sivers.
I deleted my resolutions. What I'm currently focused on:
- The Affair - sadly I've put in WORK on this show. There's 4 seasons, I started a week ago and I'm on season 3. I KNOW.
- True Detective
Here are a few of my all time favorites:
- Deviate by Beau Lotto
- Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
- Life After Death by Deepak Chopra
- Black Privilege by Charlamagne Tha God
- Revisionist History
- Broken Records
- The James Altucher Show
- The Time Ferriss Show
- Spotify, I take the easy way out, play one song I like and let them take control
- My life and observations

Where I'm Headed
For some, getting up at 3:30AM may sound like torture but I. LOVE. THAT. ISH! The drive into work when it's still dark, no matter the time of the year, finding new and different ways to engage people...yeah, I'm probably romanticizing having a morning show a little bit but it's what I want. My own morning show, "The Morning Mafia" where I'm the lead.
Add to that: write a book, see all the places, get that perfect body while still being able to eat Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cheez-Its....
