    Hi! What do I think you’d like to know about me that hopefully won’t bore you?

    I’m very excited to be the “new guy” here to help take you thru the workday on Nash FM 106.5!

    After growing up in the Midwest, it’s awesome to be near water! The Grand Strand is such a beautiful place it’s no wonder everyone wants to come here!
    I’m married and my wife Heather and I have a beautiful 5 year old son named Austin Cole along with two dogs Buddy and Boomer!

    I never knew how having a child could make you feel like your life really has a purpose.
    What am I passionate about?

    My favorite sport is NASCAR and not just the Cup Series but also the Xfinity and Truck Series.

    My favorite driver was Dale Jr. but now that’s he’s retired I’ll have to say it’s Chase Elliott.

    I’m also excited to see drivers like William Byron move up to the Monster Energy Cup Series and Christopher Bell move into the Xfinity Series.

    I also love college football, especially the SEC. Don’t hate me but I’m an Auburn fan.
    What do you do when you’re not working?:
    I like to spend as much time as possible with my family. When I get some free time you’ll find me noodling around on the guitar.

    Aren’t all radio guys really just frustrated musicians? I know I am. I’m a reformed golfer giving up the sport 12 years ago because after years of hacking at it I realized I just wasn’t very good at it.
    Have you ever done other jobs besides Radio?:
    Yes! Believe it or not I was a Field Artillery Officer in the U.S. Army for three years at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. Hard to believe they’d trust a guy like me with nukes!
