What I do for 610: I keep the Outdoor Show and weekend mornings running smoothly. You try keeping two Coast Guard Captains and two golfing enthusiasts in line for 4 hours every weekend! I finally have a reason to use that look my Mom used to give me when I acted squirrelly.

What you love about Houston: After 23 years here I still find something I haven’t done before or someplace I’ve never been.
Stuff you do when not at Sports Radio 610?: Birding – love the Texas coast bird watching, the thrill of eBay selling, geocaching and road trips that involved Icees and beef jerky.
Experience: I’ve been doing this a long time. Starting in 1990 with KILT-FM I’ve hosted two of Houston’s top rated radio shows – Cryin Lovin and Leavin and The Texas Music Revolution. And now I’m enjoying something completely different on the other side of the mic.
Teams followed: Texans, Royals, Skeeters and a non-bandwagon loving’ Chiefs fan!
Favorite sports experiences: When I was a kid I chased George Brett around Royals’ stadium to get his autograph. I got it and it’s framed and hangs in my bedroom. I got to sit in the dugout at an Astros game during a station promotion and that was VERY cool.
Sports played: Won the Missouri State Championship in softball when I played in college. Now it’s more like bowling once a month with my Godson.
