Others would say my excitement about The ‘Burg rubs off to our students, but what’s not to love, we’re in radio! With a little vision and creativity there will be no stopping our students from gaining real world experience, expanding their careers in broadcasting, and accepting national awards. I definitely have the “broadcasting bug” and I’m excited to be a part of The ‘Burg Team.

I like playing around and having fun while pretending its all work 🙂
I worked in commercial radio broadcasting for 13 years but working here at The Burg is fun showing students how to play at being creative and making a great station!
