I grew up in Webster, NY and received a Bachelors Degree in Broadcasting from SUNY Brockport.  After college I took my DJ Business and moved to Los Angeles where I met my wife Jennifer.  We moved to Nashville, TN and eventually I found myself Managing Country Clubs as an occupation (even though I'm terrible at golf).  My wife always tried to convince me to pursue more of what I enjoyed in a career so after her passing a few years ago I decided to go back to school and start a new path for myself.
 
Currently I am finishing my accounting MBA at St. John Fisher College and to satisfy my creative side started a voice-over business.  After a few voice-over jobs it eventually led me to a traffic reporting position and part time DJ for WARM 101.3, ZONE 94.1, and FICKLE 93.3 and now I am very excited to be part of the Channel 8 news team! I feel with broadcasting or accounting I can help others, and for now I'm getting them to work and school on time doing traffic which is a start.
 
My favorite past times include playing music with my friends, impromptu road trips, and exploring the different cuisine and culture that Rochester has to offer.
