As satisfying as my professional life is, my personal life is even better, but I couldn’t do what I do without the love and support of my wife and best friend, Patt. She helps me push on when times are tough and always encourages me to dream big.
I am father to a pair of amazing young men: Jonathan, who works part-time and Chris who is attending college and has a wide range of interests. They are a constant reminder of how blessed I am.
I am stepfather to two other great people, Josh and Callie, my wife’s adult children. Josh and his wife Jenna have 3 terrific kids (my step-grandchildren), while Callie and her husband Henry are parents to three dogs, who my wife calls our “Grand-dogs.”
Currently living in Phoenix, Arizona, I grew up in a military family, living in such diverse states as Washington, California and North Carolina. Settling in California during my teen years, I attended High School and College, graduating with a B.S. in Journalism from San Diego State University, with an emphasis in broadcasting.
