I was born right here in Temple, TX. I grew up in Troy, and got into local radio a month after graduating from Troy High School in 2005. I've been here ever since. Growing up, I listened to classic rock, hip-hop, country, and top 40 radio. I'd describe my musical tastes as "eclectic", since I'll listen to just about anything that suits my current mood. I'm really into 80's music and synthwave. I love riffing on movies with friends (too much Mystery Science Theater 3000 as a kid), reading, writing, and playing fetch with my pudgy dog, Leela.
