Birthday: February 11th

Hometown:  Oakland

Family: A very patient wife Shiloh (we went to middle/high school together but never dated, we went on a couple dates but she had standards then) and two crazy little girls, Coretta Lynn and Frankie Lee

Pets: I just said I had two kids.

Hobbies: Lately it seems the only hobby I have is watching Disney’s Frozen on a continuous loop. But I do enjoy doing manly stuff around the house.

Last Job before radio
: Probably the most boring job in the world…I sold Solid Surface Countertops. I also sold cars the summer before college, I still hold the record for youngest salesman hired at that dealership! And before being On-Air at KSOM I was in the sales department…so I guess that is a history of sales…which is weird, because I can’t convince my daughters to go to bed…how did I ever make a living persuading anyone to do anything?

Job you would have if you were not in radio:

Private Investigator who resides in the guest house of a posh, 200-acre  beachfront estate, in Hawaii, at the invitation of its owner, Robin Masters, the celebrated-but-never-seen author of several dozen lurid novels. Ostensibly this is quid pro quo for my services based upon my expertise in security.

While living a luxurious life on the Estate and operating as a P.I. on cases that suit me, the only thorn in the side of this near-perfect lifestyle on the Estate, is Jonathan Quayle Higgins III, an ex-British Army Sergeant Major, a (on the surface) stern, “by-the-book” ex-soldier whose strict ways usually conflict with my much more easy-going methods.

1st Concert: I think it was in high school, I went to a show at the Ranch Bowl. It was a band that went to my High School.

I can’t make it through the day without…My family (Sappy)

Fun Fact. It took me 9 years to get my Associates Degree…I left for a job in Radio…then moved back and Shiloh said she wouldn’t marry a man without a degree….the things women make you do…amiright?

Favorite 3 Artists: Lee Ann Womack…Blake Shelton…Kelly Clarkson
