Transforming KTSW

"Getting the KTSW GM/Faculty adviser position in '01 has allowed me to continue to work in the radio field and to continue teaching in a lab & classroom setting, the best possible gig I can imagine having for myself."

Proudest Moment

"Becoming a father, maintaining a marriage for more than 22 years (and counting!), moving to Austin and establishing a career through hard work, determination, networking and a more than a little bit of good luck, and being chosen to oversee one of the most amazing college radio stations in the world!"
