I'm originally from the Utica area but have left and come back several times. Most recently spending time in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm a big fan of 80's music and an even bigger fan of Bon Jovi. When I'm not at work, I spend a lot of my free time in my home studio doing other radio projects. I've been in and out of the radio business since I was 17 (and I'm not going to say when that was) and have worked at several radio stations in New Hampshire - Vermont, Arizona, and now here at Townsquare Media.
