When you’re not listening to Easy 104.1 what kind of music do you like?

I’m a fan of Rick Springfield and 80’s hair bands!  Ironic since I have no hair.

Where’s the best place you’ve ever vacationed?

Well, I’m afraid to fly so I don’t get to any exotic locations.  I love San Diego!  Great beaches, beautiful city, and PERFECT weather.

Best and worst concert you’ve ever attended?

The best one I ever saw was Rick Springfield with the San Diego Symphony!  The worst show I ever saw was Warrant at Lawlor Events Center in 1988.  They just seemed like they weren’t into it.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Overcoming my fear of speaking in front of people and becoming a professional stand up comedian.  I’ve never done stand up full time but it’s been a nice second income for 20 years!

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

He wouldn’t chuck wood now would he? Or she.
