HOW DID YOU GET INTO RADIO?
Well I got into radio on a bet with my cousin Shout Out to Cousin Karl (who still owes me $50.00)! I was in acting school wondering if all I could look forward to was waitress jobs because of course that what actors and actresses did while waiting for that big break! When one weekend my cousin and I went to a community festival and I saw the radio station that I would later work at out doing a live broadcast. I stood there for hours watching them. I told my cousin, “hey that’s what I’m going to do” and he said “Yah, right, I’ll bet you $50.00 that you don’t”! (He knew my parents would go nuts if I changed my major one more time) but of course me being the person I was, not only did I change major’s I switched the college I was attending!
WHO WERE SOME OF MY EARLIER INFLUENCES IN RADIO?
You know when I was growing up in Seattle; the Disc Jockey’s that you heard on the air were more like family members. I remember Jocks like Nasty Ness from the Sir Mix-A lot camp, as well as the Lee Bailey’s and Tom Joyner’s of the world. My association was more with the music than it was with the Disc Jockey’s at the time.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUNG PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BECOME RADIO PERSONALITIES?

My philosophy on cars is it’s a means to get you from point a to point b (right now ha ha!).
IF I COULD SPEND A DAY WITH ONE PERSON, DEAD OR ALIVE WHO IT BE AND WHY?
SOBE LIFE TIP OF THE DAY: ITS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU HAVE SEVEN TO NINE HOURS OF SLEEP PER NIGHT. RESEARCHERS FOUND THAT THE FURTHER AWAY ONE IS FROM GETTING THE RECOMMENDING HOURS OF SLEEP, THE HIGHER THEIR RISK OF OBESITY.
I’d spend the day with my two parents! Just to rest and talk and ask a few more questions about life.
