My deep ties to Rockford-area started at birth in Belvidere and spending the majority of his life in Rockford. When I’m not entertaining/stirring the pot with Lil Zim every weekday morning you’re likely to spot my kids and I throughout the 815 and outdoors. I like to believe I live up to the phrase "bleeds 8-1-5.” I’m very passionate about the great people, businesses, and places in-and-around the forest city. A piece of my heart also belongs to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as well as many of the charitable groups in Northern Illinois too. It’s hard to believe, but I’ve been playing radio in Rockford for almost 20 years.
