I was born and raised in Michigan and joined the Marine Corps straight out of High school where I spent 8 years as an Infantryman in Japan, Korea, and Iraq. I also served as a Combat Instructor in California, which ended up earning me, my nickname among my radio colleagues as “Sarge”. Following my Marine Corps career, I spent a short period of time in L.A. working as an assistant to bands like Julian K/Dead By Sunrise. But, my first love has always been radio. So I returned home to Michigan where I graduated with a degree in Radio from Specs Howard and a Bachelors degree in Communications from Rochester College. Since then I've had the opportunity to rock the airwaves in Detroit, Toledo, Monroe, & Adrian. Some of my favorite bands include Sevendust, Disturbed, Godsmack, Lacuna Coil, Stone Sour, Halestorm, Static-X & Mushroomhead.
