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.
