    Middays on FM 94/9 - 10am to 3pm

    You know what they say: great radio is 90% good music, 18% DJ magic. I am proud to be a card-carrying member of that 18%, and grateful for my almost 2 year career in San Diego radio. I have a dog named Moonwalk, I once made out with a carne asada french fry, and the most awesome band I've ever interviewed was Arcade Fire, backstage at Coachella where I was really sweaty and unfortunately, wearing an unflattering hat. You can't win 'em all. Let's party!
