Hey B98.5FM family!! I am the newest addition to the team, but certainly not new to Atlanta. You can hear me weeknights from 10pm-12am. Read on to learn a little more about me. I hope to have the opportunity to meet many of you out & about in Atlanta!
BORN: Memphis, Tennessee
GREW UP: Marietta, Georgia
WHY RADIO: I was always interested in the entertainment industry from a very young age. I would pick out the records I wanted to hear before I could even speak! Yes, vinyl records!! There was always wonderful music playing throughout my house...at all times. My parents were quite eclectic & I developed a serious love affair with everything music. Growing up I would create full scale concerts complete with dance routines, set lists, costume changes, lights, an announcer, usher, tickets…you get the idea. It would be a huge production. All my girlfriends & even the neighborhood kids would come to join the fun. Then as I got older I realized people got paid to do this & it was a wrap! I found an amazing Entertainment Technology program at Chattahoochee Technical College where we got to go on a field trip to Cox Radio. As I was walking through the halls I could see myself working here. I applied for an internship & worked in the production department where I got to voice commercials. Then when my internship was up & I had gradated I got a part-time position voicing & scheduling commercials. In 2003 I joined 95.5 The Beat…you may remember me as K-Dub. It’s been 10 years since my radio journey began & I can't wait to see what happens in the next 10 years!
FIRST CONCERT: I was 4 years old when my parents took me to see the Jackson 5 reunion tour at the Omni. I can remember that night like it was just yesterday! When Michael walked out on stage it was pitch black in the arena & then one single spot light shined on the infamous sequined glove. It’s one of the most memorable moments of my childhood.
FAVORITE MOVIES: Anchorman, Fight Club, Snatch, How to lose a guy in 10 days, Love Actually, Down with Love, any of the Austin Powers movies. The list can go on forever!
FAVORITE TV SHOW: I have to admit…I watch A LOT of TV!! My favorite shows at the moment are Revenge, Face Off, The Voice, GLEE, Happy Endings, Swamp People…you get the idea.
WHEN I'M NOT WORKING YOU CAN FIND ME DOING THIS: I’ll admit it…I’m a shopaholic! Typical, I know, but the truth none the less. I do a bit of modeling around Atlanta too. Love a good glam fest photo shoot or fashion show! LIVE music sets me free, so you can definitely find me in the crowd at a killer concert. Mostly, I’m a homebody & love to snuggle up with the love of my life a Manchester Terrier / Chihuahua mix named Lola.
FAMILY STUFF: Family is EVERYTHING to me. I have wonderful parents who have been together for 40 years. I don’t know where I’d be if it wasn’t for their guidance & continued support. Jon & Gedde are my 2 younger brothers and round out our “human” family. Lola, Manny Fresh, Larry, Chester, & Coco are the puppy kids. 5 Man-Chi’s! Yes, 5 Manchester Terrier/Chihuahuas! It’s a MADHOUSE, but we love it!
Favorite B98.5FM Artists: Lady Gaga, Prince, Adele, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Maroon 5
Gotta admit, I’m obsessed with Gotye right now. While doing some research I stumbled upon this amazing Documentary by Gotye on the recording of his latest album Making Mirrors. I was totally fascinated! He is one talented man! If you are a fan of REAL MUSICIANS, check it out! XOXO ...
