Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to work in radio. Whether it be dancing around in a mascot suit for the station, or working behind the scenes in the business office, I knew radio was for me. Radio is one of those things that can change people’s moods and create harmony amongst different views.
I grew up listening to a classic rock station in Connecticut, jamming to the tunes of Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, and other great guitar gods. I knew then that I had to be the person on the other end of the radio, playing those tunes for the people who were listening. Radio is about the music and the music is for the people. It’s one of those things that connects us to each other, spanning across countries and generations.
I ended up moving to Asheville after living my whole life up North and needing a scenery change. After college I went on a 3-week cross country road trip that changed my life. One of my stops was Asheville. While I was here I experienced the beauty, the people, and the music of Asheville. Besides falling in love with the mountains of Western North Carolina, I also fell in love with the music around here, particularly the music on 98.1 the RIVER. It was the first station I tuned into during my visit here and I never changed the dial. Once I moved here I discovered a rock station that reminded me of the one I grew up listening to. 105.9 the Mountain then became the RIVER’s competing station on my car radio dial. I thought to myself I need to know who is behind the musical genius here on these radio stations! Next thing I know, I applied for a part-time position at Asheville Radio Group so I could infiltrate the genius here, and well, the rest is history. I couldn’t be happier working in a radio career, and for a company who has an amazing product to offer the people in the community!
