I was born in Point Pleasant, raised in Brick, and currently reside in Monmouth County's Highlands region...a life long Jersey Shore resident. When I'm not on the air bringing you great music, I'm behind the scenes keeping the commercial content you hear on-air, and online, in check across the many Townsquare stations coast to coast. When I'm not at the radio ranch, you'll most likely find me trying to figure out how to do this parenting thing with my wife Jen, raising our twin sons Owen & Jake. Aside from trying to keep our boys from being too crazy and attempting to keep our sanity (which we question might be too late), we love to head to the beach and enjoy life here at the Jersey Shore. Some of my favorite artists at the radio ranch includes 38 Special, Def Leppard & Bon Jovi just to name a few. I'm thrilled to be able to play you the hits and make your weekend just that much better...thanks for listening!!!
