What are you most proud of when it comes to your work? Having spent the majority of my broadcasting career in Cincinnati.

What are you most proud of in your own life?  Has to be my wife and kids.

What do you love about living in the Tri-State? I grew up here, I’ve had the opportunity to live in other parts of the country and that has helped me realize how blessed we are to live in this slice of heaven we call the Tri-State.    

What are your favorite local hangouts/places, sports & cultural institutions? I enjoy most of the local golf courses. I can be found at lots of local swimming pools, watching my son compete at swim meets; GABP, PBS, and almost any restaurant that serves a good steak.

All time favorites (movies, music, books, shows, etc…)? I’m a big fan of Tom Clancy books - I’ve read almost all of them; also Stephen J. Cannell, Hemmingway. I like all kinds of music but when it comes to karaoke it’s Sinatra, Dwight Yoakam, and Garth Brooks. Some of my all-time favorite flicks: The Godfather trilogy, Braveheart, Runaway Train, Anchorman, Caddyshack.       

Other than 9 On Your Side & WCPO.com, you get your news from: Fox News, CNN, WSJ, Cincinnati Enquirer, 700 WLW, Tons of different websites.

 Apps you can't live without? Haven’t found one yet, although I do spend more time than I should on Candycrush. 

Tell us more! I was born and raised in Cincinnati, grew up in Mariemont and Anderson Township and live in Anderson Twp today.  I graduated from McNicholas High School and The Connecticut School of Broadcasting.  I also spent 4 years in the United States Air Force. I am married with 2 kids.  My wife and I spend a lot of time at swim meets because son is a swimmer at Anderson High School, and was State champion in the 500 Freestyle his sophomore year. I love living in Cincinnati because of all it has to offer.  When I was a kid we used to watch Al Schottelkotte on the news every night and now to be able to work at the house he built, how can you ask for more?  I’m also friends with some of his kids.
