I was born in Fort Worth, TX and raising just outside of New Orleans in Kenner, La. While growing up I got a cassette recorder as a gift. I use to record my favorite songs off the radio by holding the microphone next to the speaker. It then progressed to me talking in between the songs pretending I was the DJ. And then after watching the movie Good Morning Vietnam, I knew what I wanted to be.
I graduated from Northeast Louisiana University (now known as the University of Louisiana at Monroe) with a degree in Radio/TV/Film Production. My first radio job after graduation was with The Radio People in Monroe, La. I learned quite a bit during those early days as well as what it takes to be a Production Director. In May of 2006 I relocated to Jackson, MS as the Production Director and a few months later I ended up on the air on US96. In 2014 my wife was offered a job in Fort Worth, TX and so we loaded up a truck and made the trek to FWD. Fast forward to May of 2018, I was offered a job back with US96. It’s amazing how the good Lord works because things magically fell into place that enabled me to accept the job here.
My wife and I have a very spirited daughter that I enjoy talking about on the air. Kids do say the darndest things. My first country concert was Reba McEntire and her show just blew me away. The reason I love working in Country Radio is because of how passionate the listeners are. Country Music listeners are the best in the world and I greatly appreciate you letting me be a part of your day.
