Born and raised in Carencro/Lafayette, I've worked in the Lafayette market since 2007. My opportunity to work in radio came while I was a student at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. I started my radio career as a part-time board operator, producing sports games and giving halftime reports. Over my time here at Townsquare Media, I've hosted numerous sports and news talk shows and have done newscasts for various Townsquare radio stations. In addition to this, I broadcast high school football for the Acadiana High Wreckin' Rams. I live in Lafayette with my beautiful wife, Hannah. and my precious daughter, Adalynn. I love traveling with Hannah and enjoying our incredible area with her. I also love hanging out with my baby girl.
