About

I’m currently the program director for AM 560 WIND in Chicago. I’ve been with the station since March of 2006. WIND is owned by Salem Communications.

From 2004 to 2006, I was the executive producer at the legendary  WLS 890 AM also in Chicago, where I worked under Michael Packer and Kipper McGee.

I was an associate producer and the operations manager for Janet Parshall’s America, from 2000 to 2002, which was a nationally-syndicated talk show based out of Washington, DC.

From 1999 to 2000, I was the operations manager at WBIS 1190 in Annapolis, Maryland, which had spent most of its life known as WANN.

I have a master’s degree in Radio / TV / Film from Northwestern University’s School of Communication with a certificate in media management, policy, and science. I also have a bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College where I majored in communications with a minor in theology.

While in college, I spent three years working at WETN-FM Wheaton College Radio, where I served as operations manager from 1998 to 1999.

My earliest forays into media included producing a monthly regional access program seen on Continental Cablevision / MediaOne / AT&T Cable from 1993 to 1995. I also produced a variety of programs for Bolingbrook Community Television from 1993 until 1998. In addition, I worked as a freelance camera operator for MediaOne cable from 1996 until 1999.

I’ve taught speech communication as an adjunct professor at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines and Skokie, IL and as a visiting instructor at Wheaton College.

I live with my wife and two sons in the western suburbs of Chicago.
