I’ve always had a love for radio.  Growing up I’d record my own “show” onto cassette tapes.  Later on, I managed to rig up a “Mr. Microphone” that was a Christmas gift, to broadcast down my street, which may or may not have been legal.  It’s a good thing I was able to turn my passion for radio into a career otherwise it might’ve led to a life of crime!

When I’m not on the air, I love hanging out at home with my amazing wife and stepdaughter.  A lot of times we end up watching some trashy reality TV show.  I’m also the proud father of a dog named Oliver, who’s named after Oliver Queen, (a.ka. the Green Arrow from comic books and TV.)

Some of my favourite things are sci-fi, technology and advocating for a cleaner, greener Earth. If you see me around town, ask me about any of those things and we’ll become instant friends!
