I was born and raised in Marshall, IL. So, I am a lifelong resident of Clark County. I am a 2006 graduate of Marshall High School. During my time at Marshall High School I was a three-sport athlete (baseball, basketball and golf).
After high school I went on to study at Indiana State University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. It was at Indiana State where I got my first real taste of radio broadcasting. I immediately fell in love with radio and knew it was exactly what I wanted to do in life. While at Indiana State University I worked for the student radio network 89.7 WISU as a sports broadcaster. I was able to call many Division 1 men’s and women’s college basketball games as well baseball, football and softball during my time on campus.
I first came to work at WMMC as a part-time sports broadcaster for Marshall Lions basketball and football. Working at WMMC has been the experience of a lifetime and I look forward to entertaining Clark & Edgar Counties along with the entire Wabash Valley for many more years!

My wife Kelsey and I were married in 2014 and reside here in Marshall with our two sons, Caden and Chace.
I was born and raised on a little horse farm in Robinson, IL. The Wabash Valley has always been my little slice of Heaven. I took to broadcasting early on when I got the opportunity to do school announcements and MC events. This lead me to making my own YouTube channel where I covered Comic-Con events all across the United States. After college I used my past experience to land a local radio job.
After a few years and a few radio stations I met my hero and mentor JD Spangler. I fell in love with WMMC Radio and worked as the midday DJ for a year. Now I’m the afternoon DJ and have BIG shoes to fill, but there is no other place I’d rather be. Working with Joey’O, his family, Tom Lisella, and the local community is a dream come true!
My wife Taylr and I have been married since 2019 and reside here in the Valley, and love being active in our community and our church. We are truly blessed to work for such a great company and to get to know all you fine folk!
I was born and raised in Mount Vernon, New York, a long time ago. Being the middle of seven children, I am told that I was quiet as a youngster. My introduction to the mid west came when I studied at Indiana State University. It was at that time that I took my first taste of radio. While at ISU, I worked at two Terre Haute radio stations. After being drafted, I was able to get an assignment at The American Forces Network, Europe. Being a radio DJ in Europe at a young age was a hoot! After the service, I returned to Terre Haute and worked at three different radio stations, then, became involved in the family business, back in New York. Since then I returned to Terre Haute and radio, a little TV, and a sixteen year period where I sold cars at two different local dealerships.
My wife, Ruth and I have been married for 31 years and have lived in Marshall for the past 24 years. We have a grown son who is an accountant in Chicago.
