Wow, I can’t believe it…I’ve been waking up Greater Danbury and New York for almost 25 years, and each morning I invite you to wake up “in the country” with me on KICKS 105.5. I grew up on Long Island went to college at St. John’s University and worked in radio on “The Island” for almost 10 years before making the big move to Danbury in 1989. I have 3 great kids and the best wife ever. I will actually be riding her coat tails into heaven someday
So you want to know about me, huh? ... Well, I've lived here in Greater Danbury all my life, born and raised baby! I got into radio because I always liked music and loved helping my pops fix his Wurlitzer jukeboxes when I was really little. Okay, I'm a big radio nerd, who's kidding who here! Over the past decade I've worked in various parts of the radio station but programming is by far my favorite and most fun. I also DJ at lots of local events and bars throughout the year so you might recognize me from outside the radio station

Connecticut native with Midwestern roots, Boston educated, and Brooklyn socialized, I like to think my personality is like baskin robbins: 31 flavors of awesomeness! I enjoy country music because I like anything that combines strong women with strong whiskey. Taylor Swift is the leading lady in my heart- nothing makes me happier than seeing a woman make a dime off a little heartbreak.
