What up Kzoo? I joined the Townsquare Media team from Detroit and am now enjoying the role of Brand Manager for Kalamazoo's Rock Station 107.7 RKR and one-half of The Rocker Morning Show w/ Meatball. I graduated from Specs Howard School of Media Arts in Southfield, MI in 2012. After working at a Top-40 station in Detroit, I moved to Kalamazoo in 2017, and it was the best move I ever made.

Southwest Michigan is now my home and I look forward to being able to entertain and inform my community of everything going on near us. Let's get it!
