I was born and reared in surburban Chicago, in a small town called Berkeley. My father raised me a Cubs fan... a cruel childhood in the late 50s and early 60s.

Channel 10 has been only the second station I've ever worked for in 32 years of television. I started at WPEC in West Palm Beach. I spent 4 years in radio in West Palm... doing news, sports, making commercials, and spinning records at an easy listening station... think Sinatra and Dean Martin.

I've been part of several winning teams at charity golf tournaments, and I own a Hooters VIP card... but nothing in broadcasting.

I play golf, barbeque, then play more golf. My wife and I also enjoy going to concerts. We've raised 3 children here in the Bay area, and now are raising 2 dogs.

I love the weather in Tampa Bay... sunshine can do so much for your outlook on life. It enables me to do whatever I want outside, year-round. And everything I like to do, is here... golf, sporting events, restaurants, concerts, comedy clubs... and the best airport in the country.
