"Life begins in Texas and everything before ... don't count." Being a loyal Texan, although not a native-born Texan, that's one of my favorite quotes and it pretty well describes me. Wichita Falls has been my home since the summer of '81 and I wouldn't have it any other way. When I'm not at the Radio Station you may spot me out on a bicycle, pickin' and grinnin' at a downtown art gallery or just hanging out at the coffee shop enjoying some pleasant conversation. I love living in Wichita Falls, playing your favorite music on the Radio, writing and voicing commercials, and of course, taking pictures with my trusty Nikon. By the way, if you see someone jumping for joy at the vintage LP he just discovered in one of the local resale shops, that’s probably me.
