I‘ve been in radio for over a decade, and part of the HOT 107-9 staff for three of those years. I started out doing nights, eventually becoming the morning show host. When I’m not on-air I enjoy playing basketball, tennis, golf, and working out at the gym. I also love to add to my music library, addicted to finding the next "big song." I also DJ in nightclubs across Acadiana. My proudest moment in my career came in the summer of 2013 when I was able to help get a family an air conditioner for their home. When I told their story on-air, two Lafayette businessmen came to their aid. My motivation is to be the best I can be and to make at least one person smile listening to my show. I’m blessed to have never “worked” one day in my career. If you love what you do, it’s not "work."
