What is your favorite spot in Connecticut?
Downtown Milford or anywhere by the water.
How long have you worked for STAR 99.9? What was your first job here?
Since 2012. My first job was hosting the afternoon show, which I’m still doing today!
What makes your station/show great?
The way we connect our listeners with the artists we play at the Star Acoustic Sessions allowing them to see and meet them up close is truly something special about our Star 99.9. I also really enjoy keeping people company in the afternoon when I’m on the air. There’s nothing better than being live on the radio playing fun music, telling great stories with “Tell Me Something Good” and trying to stump you with the “I Should Have Known That!” trivia question every day.
Favorite band or artist of all time?
Mumford and Sons and The Killers
What is the best concert you’ve ever seen?
Mumford & Sons at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. February 2013
TV show or Movie that you think someone should know about?
If you’ve never seen LOST, start there. I have many theories we can discuss. I’ve also been really into cheesy network shows lately. 911, The Resident, and Manifest are all wildly entertaining. For a movie, Whiplash is excellent and should be required viewing for all kids going into middle or high school.
If you didn’t do radio, what would you do?
A skill you wish you had but sadly don’t?
Singing or any musical instrument. I’ve always thought it would be fun to be in a band. Instead I just talk about them on the radio!
If you are on death row and you have a final meal. What is it?
Large cheese pizza, duh.
Tell us one fun fact about yourself
I can juggle. Next time you see me at an event ask and I’ll prove it.

You just never know when you’re going to need someone’s quick thinking help to potentially save your life. Sometimes it happens at a McDonalds of all places.

If you’re like me you have had the same bear shaped bottle of honey in your pantry for as long as you can remember. Is there a time it needs to be tosses? Maybe not? There is actually no expiration date on honey, simple because it never goes bad. It’s the only food that can…Continue Reading

It all started last year when the Junior Prom for Norwalk High School got canceled because of COVID and this ongoing pandemic.

This is one of those weird things you never think about but totally makes sense. Almost every airline requires their pilot and copilot to eat different meals while in-flight. The reason? In case there’s something wrong with the food they can’t have a scenario where both pilots can’t function to fly. Smart! Photo credit: Getty…Continue Reading

You just never know when you’re going to strike it rich. Like this couple from California who went on a trip to Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas a couple weeks ago.

You’ve probably experienced this more than a few times over the summer with bug bites. Anytime you scratch something itchy it only makes you itch worse, but why? The reason is that it causes your brain to release serotonin, which increases the sensations all over your body. Including the sensation of the itch. My trick…Continue Reading
