I was born and raised in Wenatchee, but my family and I moved to Yakima in 1995 and we’ve lived here ever since (except for a couple of experimental and wet years in Seattle). I’m a country music fan since 1981 when, as a teenager, I landed my first country radio gig. I’ve owned, operated and managed radio stations and have spent many years waking up early to host morning shows on some valley radio stations. My wife and I have three grown children, a Davis High School Senior, a Golden Retriever named Tater at home and fabulous grandchildren in Yakima and Seattle. I enjoy time spent with my family, time on the golf course, craft beer, single-malt scotch and occasionally being on stage in Warehouse Theatre productions.
