Hey thanks for wanting to learn more about me!
I think I have always had a love for radio and the voices on it.
As a young boy I played contests all the time *you know, no more than every 30 days :) and I even won a create a commercial contest in the late '80's with CHTN where I met Kirk "working".
Shortly after co-hosting a 1 hour lunch-time stint, I began to offer to work behind the scenes, actually answering phones for Gerard and then my career really started to take off.
In junior high and high school life while I was working and going to school I was followed by a camera crew for a story about me that was even featured on CTV and YTV News *(must have been a slow news week!).
I love to check out music, talk with celebrities and flying.
I'm a proud member and Deputy Director of CASARA PEI. CASARA is Civil Air Search and Rescue.
When not in the studio, I spend time making memories with my amazing wife. We live in North Wiltshire with our 2 boys Emerson and Montgomery.
Now some random facts about me...based on questions from listeners over the years.
I can't sing. Or dance.
I can play one song on piano (The Final Countdown) thanks Liam.
I want to learn how to play harmonica. I have one and an instruction book, just haven't got the hang of it yet.
I like a good cup of tea (sometimes with milk!)
I waited a full year after turing 16 to learn to drive...even though I was working full time!
I use exclamations a lot when I type, I think its to try and make it look like how I would express it.
I've tried to grow a beard, but can't take the scratchy feeling. My best attempt was during vacation a few years ago, 8 days-but shaved it for my mom's funeral.
I had a chance to fly in (and take control of) a CF18 over P.E.I. in August 2011. Pics are here.
I was a nominee for a National Program Director Award at the 2013 Canadian Music Week celebration!
And I love pens! It's pretty simple. You have company pens or pencils so let's make this happen. Just mail me some of your company pens (with your business name on it.) In return, I'll mention your business as a “Thank You” when I use it!
