Cause You Most Believe In: I believe in family first. my wife Amy, kids (Dene, Adriann, Elijah) and my little guys (Jaden 8 and Liam 4) are my world. We have a tight bond with awesome family values. I also believe in youth and their educational needs. I came from a low-income housing project. Through my experiences, I know what it is to have needs from family support to financial aid. Radio has allowed me to be a voice and do volunteer work in the community to get kids connected to receive proper services which are vital to their success.
Local Charity Involvement: I actively volunteer in the community with The Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver, The Latin American Educational Foundation. Prodigal Son's Youth Initiative, Giving Heart Denver, Hope House; and The Tony V"/KS1075 Annual Food Drive which benefits the Food Bank Of The Rockies. I also do public speaking engagements at local schools and churches.
I'm what people call the "The Hometown Homeboy” I was raised in Southwest Denver. I started at the local R&B station (AM 1510 KDKO) in 1993 as an intern. I would call the night DJ and do voice impressions and bits. Two weeks into my internship, the station owner happened to be listening and he liked what I did, so he hired me to do the night show as a co-host the next day. I actually fell in love with radio for the first time when I was old enough to listen. (About 6 years old.)
