Since I have lived in Tulsa for pretty much the entire 21st century, I feel like I am a true Okie. 4 of my 7 children were born here and it’s the longest I’ve lived anywhere! I was a sergeant in the Marine Corps until March of 1999, and after receiving a B.A. in broadcasting from Wheaton College in Illinois, began a full time radio career. After brief stops in Huntsville, Texas and Fayetteville, Arkansas, I started at KXOJ in 2001 and am happy to be back!
I enjoy watching pretty much any sport but my favorite to play (after having a long discussion with my son Myles as to which was indeed my favorite) is horseshoes. I rarely turn down an opportunity to play whenever that chance might come along. I also am a Chicago Bears fan, Oklahoma City Thunder fan and have many aspiring athletes living under my roof. My wife Jennifer got a full ride scholarship to college for her amazing soccer skills and we have been married since May of 1994.
I’ve had the chance to sing the national anthem at Driller’s games, Talon’s games, Oiler’s games, ORU Golden Eagle’s games, and the circus, but by far the most memorable was at KXOJ’s Freedom Live one year in my Marine dress blues. You might even catch me singing the Danny Myers paint and Body jingle on KXOJ!
With an amazing connection I made through KXOJ, I have had the privilege to pursue a hobby and passion to record voice overs for movies over the past 9 years including Courageous, Fireproof, Soul Surfer, To Save a Life, The Grace Card, The Christmas Candle, Home Run,(which was filmed here in Tulsa) Michael W. Smith’s The Second Chance, and many others.
My church family is very important in my life, and I have come to rely on their love, support, and friendship over the years. I have had the privilege of leading worship at my church and relish in allowing the Holy Spirit to renew my mind each day through the amazing songs we play on KXOJ. Thanks for allowing me to continue my journey with you each day.
