Hi, Thanks for clicking through! I'm your 961 WODZ morning show host, freelance musician, blogger, pilot and father to four amazing kids... I've been an aviation enthusiast since puberty, am attracted to poker rooms and about the only physical activity I've ever gotten into was skating. I believe in love at first sight, living life to it's fullest even if it means getting STUPID and feel like there's no cure for life's ills like retail therapy... Thanks for reading and listening!
