I got into radio when I was about 15, some DJ let me on his show and that was it.
After that I spent that last 2 years of high school working, interning and doing random things at KID-FM in Idaho Falls, ID.
Yeah, I graduated HS in Idaho. But right after high school I moved to where my true home to be, East Texas. When I finished at Kilgore College I was planning on going on to get my bachelors but for some reason or another decided it was time to do something different.
The year was 2002, I was 20 years old and I was joining the Army. I left for basic training in September 2002. The Army wasn’t bad, I met a lot of great friends, and got to see some different places. I was stationed in Friedberg Germany, which is where Elvis was stationed during his enlistment, before finishing up at Fort Hood. I spent 2 tours (nearly 29 months) in Iraq, from May ’03 through June ’04 and October ’06 through January ’08. I was honorably discharged in April 2008 with the rank of Sergeant and an intimate understanding of how great this country is.
After I got out, the very next day I moved back to East Texas. I enrolled at The University of Texas at Tyler and began getting used to and enjoying civilian life. I graduated in May ’10 with a BBA in Business Marketing (one of those useful degrees.)
This brings us right up to the end of December 2010 when I got back into radio. So come on, you’re invited to checkout my show Radio Texas, LIVE! live every Saturday night.
