I came of age in the bustling metropolis of Richfield Springs, NY (pop: 1,300) before moving to Los Angeles in search of smog and crime.

I returned to the area in 2014 to help my mother remove an air conditioner. I enjoy history, pro wrestling, and spicy foods, and I'm looking forward to getting weird with you every evening on WOUR.
