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?

8 years. Since 2012. My first job here was On Air Afternoons 3-7pm.

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. 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!”question every day.

Favorite band or artist of all time?

Blink 182

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.  

If you didn’t do radio, what would you do?

Professional Golfer

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.

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why is the NBC logo a peacock?

You’ve seen it a million times when you’re watching NBC. The colorful peacock logo. But what made them pick that? Such a random choice for a TV Network. Back in 1956 NBC created its peacock logo because peacocks are multicolored.  RCA who owned NBC at the time did this as a sneaky marketing move hoping…Continue Reading
