I was born in Fort Worth, TX and raised 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.
I’ve been married to my best friend, Donna, for 11 years and we’re blessed to have a very spirited daughter that I enjoy talking about on the air. Kids really do say the darndest things. 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.
