I'm a Freetown native, a product of public schools and a graduate of UMass Amherst. I also graduated from the U.S. Army's Military Police school, and was honorably discharged from the Massachusetts National Guard. I was later the founder of a weekly newspaper, and worked as a journalist for several other publications. I served as Freetown selectman, and as a delegate to the Republican state convention. I worked in the world of business and sales for a number of years. I started in radio with Boston Herald Radio, and now I'm here on WBSM, combining my experience in the military, politics and the business world to bring you discussion and debate every weekday morning from 10 a.m. to noon.
