Broadcasting has always been my second love – right behind music. I earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Northern Colorado and spent a number of years working (starving, really) as a freelance trombone player in Chicago and Denver. I soon realized I would need another profession to fall back on, so I chose the very stable (ha!) radio industry.

My first job was at a newstalk station in Denver. After a few years there I was hired to be news director at a station in Summit County, Colorado. Skiing and radio were my life. I returned to Denver after about a year in the mountains and became a long-haired rock jock. I worked at stations in Denver and Phoenix during the 1990’s, then suddenly found myself unemployed and playing Mr. Mom following the birth of our son. I was teaching beginning instrumental music to 5th graders when I was lucky enough to land a job at the mighty KGMI early in 2003.

My wife, Laurie, is a radio star in her own right and has been half of the morning show at Classic Rock KISM since then. Our son, Tommy, is 9 years old and loves Bellingham. Our new daughter Ella Ray was born last December. Laurie’s been through a very rough year following brain surgery to repair an aneurysm and we’ve truly found out how loving and giving our adopted community is. Thank you for being our neighbors.
