Hello! It’s great to be an official member here at KINK. As a native Oregonian I have always wanted to be a part of radio here in Portland and after almost 20 years in radio I finally get that chance!

I started radio in Gresham at Mt. Hood C.C. and had a great chance to run a college station and work in college radio. Then the chase for radio work took me off to Eugene, Dallas Texas, and San Francisco. After a great run at LIVE105 in San Francisco for eleven years, it was time to come home to Oregon.

I am a proud father of two boys and love being a dad. When I am not on the links at Heron Lakes or East Moreland, I also enjoy hiking the Gorge and getting over to Central Oregon.

I love live music. As of now my favorite venue is Doug Fir Lounge. I’ve been to hundreds of shows and my favorite show to date is Roger Waters – The Wall. Any Arcade Fire show is a close second.
