Well, what can I say? I was born and raised right here in the heart of Deep East Texas, in San Augustine County. I was the only child of the two greatest parents of all time. I graduated from West Sabine High School in Pineland in 2012, and then graduated from Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches in 2015 with a B.A. in Mass Media, with an emphasis in Radio/TV Production. While I was still in college, I worked part-time for the radio stations here in Lufkin, doing odd-jobs here and there, just trying to get my feet wet in the radio industry. I went to work full-time here in October of 2015. Now, you can hear me in the afternoons from 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM on Q107, just an east Texas guy trying to make my "Mark" on the world. I'm married to Jordan Cunningham, AKA "The Most Awesome Girl EVER"! Even though I'm on-air for the Classic Rock station, I have one of the most diverse tastes in music that you're going to find, especially around this area. I like a little bit of everything, from Country, to Classic Rock, to Hip-Hop, to a little bit of everything else. You can generally find me at the dance hall on the weekends, and if I'm not there, I'm listening to music of some sort, somewhere. How would I describe my life? AWESOME. I can definitely say that I'm blessed. Thanks for listening!
