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 worker with ESPN 1420 AM, producing sports games and giving halftime reports. Over my time here at Townsquare Media, I've hosted numerous sports and newstalk shows and have done newscasts for various Townsquare radio stations. I host "OFFSIDES" with Shannon Wilkerson from 4-6 PM on Mondays - Fridays. We enjoy talking social issues, politics, sports, and other news that matters with our listeners. In addition to this, I broadcast high school football for the Acadiana High Wreckin' Rams. I live in Lafayette with my beautiful wife, Hannah. I love traveling with her and enjoying our incredible area with her.
