I was born in Boston, MA and grew up in a small town called Walpole. I studied Communication at Curry College in Milton. That is where I caught the “Radio Bug.” I worked at WMLN, my college station for all four years. My senior year I had an internship at a station up in Boston and continued working there until I decided to trade in my snow boots for flip flops and move to the coast.
Music has always been a love of mine. Some of my favorite bands are. Dropkick Murphy’s, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, Foo Fighters, Incubus, Jack Johnson. I even met my wife Corey at an Incubus concert. I have been a Mobile/ Club DJ since 8th grade. So you can catch me on the radio or maybe even at a local bar.As a Bostonian I root for all my favorite hometown teams even if they are not doing well. I even got a Red Sox tattoo during an awful season. Speaking of tattoos I am obsessed with them. I have 13 and counting. Recently I became a father of a baby boy named Brady (and no not after Tom) so my life has been flipped all around. I look forward to the day he can hear me on the radio.
