Hi! Geesh, where do I start? I’m from Providence, Rhode Island, originally. I went to Northeastern University in Boston for Criminal Law way back when. I ended up sitting in on a rape trail and said, “Nope…not for me”. It’s then that I took that elective Television class and received the only “A” in my entire stay at Northeastern. One thing led to another and I then enrolled in a trade school in New England for broadcasting, graduating with a 4.0.
My journey in broadcasting has led me to Providence, Orlando, Boston, Providence again, New Hampshire and finally to Mix 106-5 here in Baltimore. I’ve been on-air at Mix 106-5 since September of 1997! It is my passion of mine to be a radio broadcaster. I yearn to bring some kind of joy into other people’s lives, either through the music I play, the information I broadcast, or the prizes and trips I give away. It truly keeps me going….along with my family.
I’m married with two boys, ages 8 and 10. My life was wonderful until that dreadful day, on March 12th, 2014….when I was diagnosed with Leukemia… Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia…with a Philadelphia chromosome to make matters worse. I was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital from March 2014 until September 2014 as an inpatient. I received a bone marrow transplant in June of 2014 from an anonymous donor from the National Bone Marrow Registry which saved my life. I contracted Graft Versus Host disease after my transplant and was treated aggressively for that. My body was basically rejecting the brand new bone marrow and treating it as foreign matter in my body. I can say with great enthusiasm that I am CANCER FREE today and take each and every day as it comes. I’m grateful for so many people and things in my life. I continue to take chemotherapy pills daily because of the ALL “with Philadelphia chromosome” to prevent the cancer from coming back in my brain. Overall, I’m very healthy and just so happy to be alive. God Bless!
