I got involved in broadcasting out of a years-long desire to do so, as I also serve as a reader at my church, and have done some voiceover work in the past.
I played in my high school’s symphonic and marching bands, and later in various Irish and Scottish pipe bands, as a percussionist. My favorite genre of music is classic rock. My favorite composers, like a great many classical music lovers, include Mozart, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky. I also enjoy John Phillip Sousa’s works.
I’ve travelled extensively through the 48 contiguous states, having been the son of a 30-year naval aviator and relocating every 2 to 3 years. My memories of the performances of the U.S. Army Fife and Drum Corps, the U.S. Army Band, and the U.S. Marine Band, as well as a number of rock bands, including the Who, Peter Frampton, Joe Bonamassa, and U2, are what stand out.
