Been up and down the radio dial a few times. Started in New Bedford in the late 1970's at WNBH/WMYS. My journey took paths through Burlington, Vermont, Plattsburg, New York and Providence, Rhode Island before winding it's way back home again. I have done missionary work in Haiti, air boated through The Everglades and watched the sun go down in the deserts of Arizona and Nevada but my best times are spent with my wonderful wife Suzanne and my terrific sons Zachary and Steven. My passions include kayaking, travel, music and following current events.
