A lifelong resident of Lubbock except for a few years in Dallas, I'm glad to be back on the radio in the Hub City. I love vaping, going to local shows, and giving you, the listener, 110 percent! Oh yeah -- I love food. Doesn’t matter what, just gimme! And as for Boleo and what it means? You would have to find a guy named Puppet and ask him!
Lubbock radio has been a huge part of my life for my whole life. I grew up in a very musical house that always had the radio or a record on. I'm also a make-up artist at the happiest place on earth: Nightmare On 19th Street. In my spare time, I host sing-a-longs and movie parties at a local movie theater. I enjoy weird movies and books, artificial pineapple flavoring, live music and spreading irresponsible rumors. (Photo: Alicia Kalani Photography)
I’ve been in Lubbock radio for over 20 years, getting no. 1 ratings on every on-air shift that exists. I have five kids who keep my already busy schedule even busier. I’m also the travelling emcee and DJ for the country's favorite 5K, the Insane Inflatable 5K. On the side, I co-host "The Skidmarks Show," the no. 2 rated podcast on iTunes, along with TV star Jeff Allen from CNBC’s "The Car Chasers."
