I'm your ex-patriot Canadian host of 'The Morning KIIK Start' weekdays from 6-10am. I've been living in the Quad-Cities for 18 years now. I'm a self-described 70's and 80's 'musicologist,' who lives and breaths the greatest hits we plays on KIIK. When I'm not 'musicologing' (it's a word now!) I enjoy working on my family's century-old Craftsman home, or watching the guys on This Old House work on someone else's. D-I-Y porn. I can also often be found making an ass of myself with It's A Mystery in live, interactive comedy whodunit shows. I'd love for you to wake up with me each morning on KIIK... That didn't read as creepy as it sounds.

Steamwheelers Holding Open Tryouts
In 6th grade, I was hell bent on making the football team, but I knew I was small, so I thought I could at least be the kicker. I practiced for weeks and when tryout day came, the wind blew dust in my eyes just as I was kicking and I bounced the ball across the turf...
