I come to the South Shore by way of the Jersey Shore. After getting to Emerson College back in 2010, I was immediately attracted to radio. It’s not as flashy as other mediums, but more than any other news source, the story has to be clear, concise, and personal, and that’s why I love it.

Previous stops before the South Shore include WOBM on the Jersey Shore, WCCM in the Merrimack Valley, an internship at CBS Radio News’ flagship station, WCBS 880 in New York City, and a few formative years at Emerson’s WERS. When I’m not behind the mic I’m probably behind the diamond. I realized at an early age that I was much better at watching baseball than playing it. While the Red Sox are not my favorite team, I hope you can look past that and join me as we explore the South Shore. You can usually hear me anchoring Thursday and Friday afternoons at noon, 4, 5, and 6, and occasionally subbing in on the morning shift.
