Tuscaloosa's own and your host for the WTUG praise party. I graduated from Northridge High School and attended Shelton State Community College as well as Stillman College. I'm a musician and all around music lover, but the piano is my favorite. My love for radio began here at WTUG , and since there is no place like home, I'm delighted to be back.
I was born in Chicago, IL but moved to rural Aliceville, AL before fate landed me in the City of Champions. I can be heard during the midday, sometimes speaking with eloquence and professionalism. But every now and then, I have to "bring it on home," and you'd swear you were talking to a cousin or good friend. I have no problem making fun of myself, giving compliments, or saying what most people are thinking. That's just me!
Most of my life has been spent working with, in, or around sports, and that's how I spend a lot of my free time. Being a graduate of The University of Alabama has afforded me the opportunity to work with great organizations like the Tennessee Titans Radio Network, the Birmingham Barons, and most recently ESPN in Connecticut. In fact, I began my job at ESPN a week before Nick Saban accepted his position in Tuscaloosa so I hope I don't have the reverse effect returning to town
