In My Own Words

Way back in the turbulent months of the fall of the year 2006, seeking solace from the mudane and apprehensive nature of the world in which I resided, I discovered the origin of 88.1 FM. With the aid of an acquaintance that had been partaking in the radio-y goodness that I would soon indulge myself in, I signed up for my very first on-air shift bringing the Tri-State the good word of B.B. King, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane in the wee hours of mid-morning

From that point forward I would begin branching out at a rapid pace into the welcoming embrace of college radio. From the mild-mannered on-air talent, to sports-talk-host-radio guy, to everything in between and beyond it did not take long before I found myself in my first and then second directorship at WMUL.

Aside from my life at the station, (life outside the station? What a quaint concept.) I usually spend my free time scouring record stores for original pressings of The Who albumns. I also dabble in creating my own music, though to poor results at times. I tend to posses strong attention deficit disorder with my hobbies and interests, as my obsessions know no bounds beyond music as well, and linger into sports, movies, and food.

All-in-all I'm a pretty simple lad with so much going on at times I'm impressed I keep up, and not surprised when I don't.
