I grew up in Boring ..yes …BORING Oregon! However, growing up on a farm with tons of land gives you plenty to do. Honda 50 Mini Motorcycles were a passion. So were go-carts made from old Lawn Mowers. Summers were always fun because my family would go on waterskiing vacations with our boat. I learned how to water-ski when I was only 6 years old! Just a few years later at the age of 9 I realized I wanted to be on the radio! I was on an annual deer hunting trip with my family and a local radio station was doing “Honk if you’re a hunter” My dad honked, we heard it on the radio, and I was hooked!
I went to college in Oregon where I received my Associates Degree in Radio Broadcasting. I spent the first 6 years of my career working for the heritage Oldies station in Portland 97.1 KISN FM. In 2000 I moved north to Seattle where I spent a little time on most every radio station in the market!! Ha-ha!! I spent most of my time as a Morning Show Co-Host on KISS 106.1 and Mix 92.5. I also did a stint on TV reporting the Morning Traffic on KOMO 4 News. I wrapped up my time in Seattle hosting my own night show on 94.1 KMPS. I am very proud that I took the show to #1 in under a year’s time!
Last summer when I visited Florida I said, “Mark my words I am going to live here someday!” And…Here I am!! Thanks for listening!
