I love the Big Island. I’ve lived in Papaikou, on Alii Drive in Kona, up mauka west side, and Waimea, so I’ve seen and lived the diversity on the island. I love that it’s a Big yet small island.

I was born just outside of Boston many moons ago. My radio career began in 1995 on WCAP-AM in Lowell, Mass., then WGIR-FM (Rock 101) in Manchester, New Hampshire, until my move to the Island of Hawaii in 2004. In 2006, I was blessed to become a part of the KBIG family!

I’m proud to be half of the Wake Up & Drive Show on KBIG, 106.1 FM in Kona/Waimea, 97.9 FM in Hilo and the East Side, and online at, and become a fan on Facebook at
