CITY OF BIRTH: Nashville, TN
HOMETOWN: Hendersonville, TN
ASTROLOGICAL SIGN: Gemini
DC or MARVEL: DC I guess because of Batman, although Captain America was one of my favorites as a kid. I was always more of a G.I. Joe and TNMT kid,”Yo Joe!” “…cause knowing is half the battle”, and “Heroes on the Half Shell, Turtle Power!”. That’s a tough one cause Marvel did the G.I. Joe comics as well.
PETS: No pets currently but I do have an array of animals in my back yard. There is a family of Raccoons, a scurry of squirrels, at least 3 stray cats that pass through from time to time and a chubby lil’ groundhog that shows up spring through fall which has been nicknamed West Hills Willie by the neighborhood. I have even seen a fox in my front yard and several in the neighborhood, even turkeys, no bears or deer yet though. So those are my pets for now and the best part is, I don’t have to feed them. I am an animal lover though for sure.
FAVORITE FOODS: Fried Chicken, Grilled Chicken, Pizza, Seafood, Cheeseburgers, Mexican Food, Peanut Butter, Eggs over easy with toast, Beenie Weenies, Turkey, Banana Pudding. I love to grill so basically anything that I can throw on the grill. I also love hot sauce. I have like 5 different kinds of hot sauce in my cabinet at any given time, I put that “bleeep” on everything.
FAVORITE BAND(S): The Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, Nirvana, Johnny Cash, Pearl Jam, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jack White’s many bands, The Devil Makes Three, Chris Stapleton (The SteelDrivers), The Talking Heads, Weezer, Cake, Red Hot Chile Peppers, Cage the Elephant, 311, Sublime, The Grateful Dead, Phish, Beastie Boys.
WHY ARE YOU IN THIS BUSINESS: I have always had a passion for music and radio since a very young age. I absolutely love working in radio. I have been in this business now for over 15 years and I’m not sure what I would be doing if I wasn’t working in radio somewhere.
HOBBIES: Camping, Canoeing, Hiking, Grilling Out, Mountain Biking, Boating, Fishing, Swimming, Concerts, Live Music and shows, Playing Trivia, Karaoke.
WHO WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO SEE: Well, it was The Rolling Stones but I finally got that off the bucket list in June 2015 when they played LP Field in like 100 degree weather. The Stones killed it though and it was totally worth the ticket price, the heat, and sweat. I have no idea how Mick Jagger and Keith Richards continue to rock out especially in conditions like that, amazing. Other than that I think the Billy Joel/Elton John thing would be cool or both on separate occasions. Haven’t seen either one. U2, Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show Live, I would also like to get all parrot-headed out at a Buffet concert as I have yet to see him live either. I still want to see Twenty One Pilots live also which I have not.
WHO WOULD YOU MOST WANT TO MEET OR HANGOUT WITH: Jack White, Dave Grohl, Matthew McConaughey, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Fallon, Jeff Bridges, Cameron Diaz, Sofia Vergara
FAVORITE PRO TEAM(S): Nashville Predators, Tennessee Titans, New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox
FAVORITE COLLEGE TEAM: V…O…L…S, V-O-L-S, GO VOLS GO!
