I'm a nomadic Ohio native who has called CNY home since 1991. Although a musician and teacher by trade, it's by complete chance that I'm even behind a radio microphone! I live in New Hartford with an amazing woman and 5 wonderful kids. Nothing engages me like a good conversation or new idea and I love winging life in the moment. When the curve balls fly though, there's no cure like retail therapy, a haircut, driving with the windows down or walking around barefoot! When I'm not on the air, some of my hobbies are: Flying Airplanes, Piano / Singing, Texas Hold-em, Competitive Pool, Skating and Movie Nights

March 13th Snow Storm Time Lapse Footage From Syracuse
Living in Central New York for the past two decades, I'm really not sure why we all flip out when any amount of snow falls. I for one, love the way it looks while falling, the way it looks as it blankets everything in sight
