Hailing from Tucson, Arizona by way of Tallahassee, Florida, I am living a dream, being a multi-media personality and DJ! Though it was by accident, I found my passion in radio and DJing, after moving from Tucson to Tallahassee to attend Florida A&M University. I was elected to student government, where I met Lady J, who was also in student government and a radio personality at the college radio station. In 1997, Lady J invited me, a freshman to play a small role on her radio show, that later ended, but it was just the beginning of my journey in radio. Prior to moving to Buffalo, I most recently served as morning show co-host on WPEG in Charlotte, NC for 5 years. I also spent 2 years as a entertainment report co-host on television station WBTV! I am currently entertaining and informing the Queen City of WNY with the "2 To 6 Takeover" weekdays from 2-6 pm on the oldest urban station in the country, The People's Station, 93.7 WBLK!
