What should you know about me?

Born and raised in St. Louis. Proud to be a Missouri State Bear! Met my beautiful wife here while in college. If you ever meet her, she’ll give you ALL the details on that! I worked a couple of places around the dial in Springfield before leaving in 2001 for Illinois. Do you remember Hot 106.7? That was me back in the day, and I spent the last 17 years being on the radio in Joplin.  I had an opportunity to come back here in August of 2020, and my family and I were super excited! We’re having a blast checking out the restaurants, the shops and all the sports!

  1. I know more Weird Al lyrics than one man probably should.
  2. I prefer my soda with only a spoonful of ice.
  3. Guacamole tastes like melted crayons. You’re wondering how I know what melted crayons taste like? (that would be #4, but I can only list 3

Amy and I have been married since 2005 (we go back muuuuuch farther than that, again she can fill you in!) We’re happy to be raising our three kids here in Springfield. Our two oldest are out on their own for the first time. They work great as brother and sister, but ‘roommates’ is a challenging endeavor. Our youngest just graduated high school as a member of the class of 2022! We’re also pet lovers, and at one point had a home filled with six furry creatures! 

Radio has always been in my passion and I have been in the business since 1993. I was named the Kansas Association of BroadcastersPersonality Of The Year in 2020.

We’re so excited to be a part of the Springfield community once again, and I can’t wait to meet you. Thanks so much for listening.
