Mornings, 6am – Noon

I grew up in the bustling metropolis of Atkinson, NH and graduated from Timberlane High School.  I’m a New Hampshire kid all the way!  Except for that one year when I lived in New York City working in concert production.  I also spent four years going to college in Michigan…okay, five years but who’s counting?  While that phase is quite a haze I did manage to make it out with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music from Western Michigan University.  I minored in Communications but I could never get a time slot on the college radio station.  Ironic, eh?

I’ve always loved radio.  I knew I wanted to be a disc jockey way back when I was 7 years old and my Dad would drive me to school listening to “The Big Mattress” on WBCN in Boston.  I used to say “Dad, I’m going to be on the radio like those guys someday” and whad’ya know?  Today, here I am.  I got my start in broadcasting out on the Seacoast starting out as an intern on a Classic Rock Morning Show.  I graduated to full-time overnights on a country station at the same company.  I also did a substantial amount of work for a non-profit FM.  Now here I am at a GREAT station like 96.5 The Mill playing some of the best music ever recorded.

When I’m not on the radio chances are I’m either out on the town enjoying living and working in Downtown Manchester or on my boat somewhere off the coast of Newburyport, Mass.  I LOVE to fish but I have the luck of a typical Irishman.  The only thing I’m really good at catching is a buzz and a decent sunburn.
