-Bachelor's in Radio at Columbia College Chicago. At the college station WCRX,  On-Air for 3 years, Music Director for 1 year, and Public Affairs Director for 1 year.  
-interned at WLUP 97.9 The Loop in the Programming department, and helped out with Q101's programming as well.
-Got involved with CHIRP in the Fall of 2008.
-overnight board operator for WUSN US99.5 for 5 years, && 9 month stint as co-producer of Lisa Dent & Ramblin' Ray's morning show.

Right now I am taking a break from commercial radio and focusing on CHIRP!
