I was born and raised in the beautiful foothills town of Morganton, NC. Music has been a part of my life ever since I could speak my first words, and after landing my first job at a college radio station in 2005, I knew I was hooked! I then graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in 2009 with a Media Broadcasting Degree.

After realizing how much I missed these gorgeous mountains, I moved back west (eventually) to Asheville by way of Greensboro, Seattle, and even Spain! Living in and experiencing all these places has granted me a diverse and well-rounded sense of music that I try and bring to the table every day here at the RIVER, and sharing this music with listeners is by far the best part of my job!

When I’m not in the studio, I enjoy disc golf, running, home-brewing, and of course the plethora of outdoor activities Asheville has to offer. Above all, I am ecstatic to be a member of the RIVER family, and I can’t wait to play some music for you!

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
