Five Things You May Not Know About Me:

  1. I’m a free-lance photographer (in my so-called spare time).
  2. I’m not a trained musician, although some friends and I have created some interesting “audio art” scores for silent films, like Nosferatu.
  3. I’m a huge Star Wars geek. So much so that my iPhone has an R2-D2 cover and my ringtones are mostly Star Wars sound effects.
  4. I co-founded Springfield StageWorks and have directed and produced several shows at the State Theatre in Springfield.
  5. There’s more to my job than meets the ear. I’m not only on the air Monday through Friday mornings, but I am also responsible for the daily and weekly broadcasts of Performance Today, Composers Datebook, Met Opera and any other nationally syndicated programs we air.


One Thing You May Know about Me:

I’ve been married for 20 years, and my wife and I have spent more than half that time slowly renovating our house in Springfield. As my father-in-law used to say, “Anybody who owns their own house… deserves it.”
