Some things in life we have control over and some things we don't. I was very fortunate for these three things to occur in my life that I had absolutely no control over: 1) I was born an American, 2) I grew up as a teenager in the '60s, and 3) I was a teenager in the City of San Francisco! What I took for granted back then was really a blessing. Particularly, being a part of the SF music scene. Going regularly to The Fillmore, Winterland, Avalon Ballroom, and the free concerts in Golden Gate Park made me a life long "musicologist." Experiencing the early days of the Motown era and the exploding latin- rock days of Santana were very special to me. As my music collection grew from the Haight Ashbury heydays to today, I always have enjoyed compiling playlists of tapes and CD's for family and friends. I remain passionate about the importance of music in ones life. Music brings joy and happiness to your soul and keeps optimism at the forefront.
After a very enjoyable career as a Recreation & Park Director for The City, my wife, Stacy, and I made the move to Nevada County in 2006. It was very important to me to be a contributing member of the community. I gravitated to the Community Radio Station - KVMR. The rest is history. Initially, volunteering at the Celtic and World Music Festivals, working at the front office desk, and assisting in the Music Dept. at KVMR were my early experiences as a member in the KVMR Family. The next natural progression for me was completing the Broadcaster Training Class of 2008 and becoming a very proud and passionate broadcaster for KVMR.
