Monday-Friday KISS FM Evenings 7pm-Midnight

How did you get started in radio? I got my bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism at Columbia College in Chicago and always thought I would aspire to be a sideline reporter for the NFL, but one of my classes was radio based and that’s where my new ambition to host my own radio show came about.

If you weren't working in Radio, what would you be doing? Psychology and law have always fascinated me but owning acres of land and starting my own dog rescue foundation sounds amazing!

What are a few random facts about yourself that we should know? I play-by-played an entire Chicago Bulls vs Boston Celtics game and interviewed the players in the locker room afterwards (don’t worry they were in their towels).  I moved to Maui with no job, car or place to live…just 5 suitcases and a dream. I am obsessed with ice-cream and dogs…I would even share my ice-cream with a dog.

Favorite quote? “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough”

What kind of music would we find on your iPod? EVERYTHING… Bruno Mars, Ellie Goulding, Tim McGraw, Beyonce, Dave Mathews Band, Pink, The Green, Fleetwood Mac, Drake and so much more. “One good thing about music is, when it hits you, you feel no pain,” Bob Marley.

What do you fear? Besides scary movies and clowns it would be to never amount to my full potential in life.
