How long have you worked in radio?
I started my career in radio right out of college, and I  
began radio here in New Mexico in 1996 on KOOL 102 FM.

Other jobs you’ve had?
In high school I was an usher at the Bel-Air Drive-In Theater. I’ve also delivered pizzas, and I was a driver’s helper for UPS, to name a few.  

Where are you from?
I was born in Chicago, Illinois.  And I was named after a street in that very city.

Your favorite color?


Favorite things to eat?
Please feed me Italian, Mexican, New Mexican, Chinese, fresh seafood, and when all else fails -- a Chicago Dog, preferably from Pippin’s Tavern.   

Favorite movies and TV shows?
Can someone load up CaddyShack or My Favorite Year?   
From the small screen, there’s Chopped, or any episode of M*A*S*H.

Favorite authors?
Hunter S. Thompson, almost any cookbook and Jimmy Buffett.

Hobbies, pastimes and sports?
I love to cook.  Right now I’m thinking about what I’m making for dinner tonight.  Football, baseball, basketball, hockey… let’s watch a game. And I like to participate in annual New Mexico Events like the Fiery Foods Show, Balloon Fiesta and Doggie Dash and Dawdle, naming just a few.

Who are your favorite Oasis artists?
Dave Koz, Jeff Golub, Boney James, Steely Dan, Corrine Bailey Rae... there are just too many to mention.  Just listen for an hour... you’ll have the same problem.  

What’s in your CD player or iPod now?
Anything from James Taylor, Jet, Zach Brown Band, B.B. King... or when all else fails, Jimmy Buffett.

Where would you go on your Dream Vacation?
Cancun, Jamaica, Australia, Italy... just find me an ocean!

Do you have pets?
My wonderful dog Kiwi.
