I was born and raised in Chicago and I’m the prototypical radio guy. From a young age, I would walk around with a tape recorder making radio as an amateur. Not much has changed since then. I did somehow manage to get married and have three kids. While I’m still a radio amateur, I have excelled at being a dad and husband. I’m a big fan of sports, movies, comics, TV and pop culture in general.
