I'm a nomadic Ohio native who has called CNY home since 1991. Although a musician and teacher by trade, it's by complete chance that I'm even behind a radio microphone! I live in New Hartford with an amazing woman and 5 wonderful kids. Nothing engages me like a good conversation or new idea and I love winging life in the moment. When the curve balls fly though, there's no cure like retail therapy, a haircut, driving with the windows down or walking around barefoot! When I'm not on the air, some of my hobbies are: Flying Airplanes, Piano / Singing, Texas Hold-em, Competitive Pool, Skating and Movie Nights
