What is your favorite spot in Connecticut?
Fairfield Ave in the Black Rock area of Bridgeport. Best local music scene in the state.
How long have you worked for the FOX? What was your first job here?
Started on the Promo team in Fall 2018
What makes your station/show great?
The focus on 90’s music. Any station I can hear Rage, Sublime, Tool, and the Chili Peppers all in the same hour, is the station for me
Favorite band or artist of all time?
Red. Hot. Chili. Peppers. With Frusciante. Hillel Slovak is cool too.
What is the best concert you’ve ever seen?
Vulfpeck at the Garden this last September. Those dudes are at the top of their game right now.
TV show or Movie that you think someone should know about?
Funky Monks, it’s a documentary on the making of BloodSugarSexMagic. Behind the scenes look at how the music was written and recorded.
If you didn’t do radio, what would you do?
Having a wife and kid kinda rules out the whole “Go on tour with a band” thing so…..Teach?
A skill you wish you had but sadly don’t?
I wish I could sing. I play guitar, so sometimes I’ll have a few drinks and think I can, but I can’t.
If you are on death row and you have a final meal. What is it?
A massive Eggs Benedict and a Porterhouse with 2-3 unfiltered New England IPA’s
Tell us one fun fact about yourself
I’ve had a full head of gray hair since the age of 25. Found my first one at 12.
