BRIEF CAREER SYNOPSIS:

I started my career as an on-air personality at WRKE (101.7 KISS FM)/ Ocean View, DE, then relocated to Wilmington, DE to work at WJKS (KISS 101.7).


1) What are your top-five favorite songs of all time?
  • Jay-Z Cant’ Knock The Hustle
  • Jay-Z The City Is Mine
  • Jay-Z Takeover
  • Jay-Z What more can I say
  • Jay-Z Pray
2) How do you decide on what music to play and rotations?

I do music research and being on the air, I can keep a eye on the phone requests as well. Also, if I hear a song and think it’s hot, it goes in … point … blank … period!

3) What new challenges are you anticipating?

I am taking on a new vision and I really want to focus on marketing. What I mean by marketing is doing in market visits, billboards and heavy promo on the air!

4) What people have influenced your radio career?

The individuals who have influenced me the most are Geo Cook and Colby Colb.

5) What is it about your city and your job that you like so much?

I love my city, because the people in it give the station lots of love — and we support them, too. Plus, who doesn’t like tax free shopping! The job … is like a dream come true. I live and breath radio, so getting paid for something you love to do is always a plus!

6) What’s your opinion on the future of radio and Urban radio?

Radio is in a tough battle right now, given all the other options the listener now has. However, if radio can continue to come up with new and innovative ideas, radio will be fine. This goes for Urban radio as well.

7) What to you do to relax when you are not working?

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of sleep.

8) If a genie in a bottle gave you three wishes, what would they be and why?

Health, happiness … and of course, a $100 million to buy my own station. LOL
