Growing up, my life could be summed up in one word...SPORTS. Football, baseball, basketball, and track (I learned golf later). At Central Catholic High we were 1976 state champs in football when I was a sophomore. In 1977 I started center field for Lafayette's first Colt World Series champion (baseball). Onto Ball State, where college football was much of my life. After I realized I was not going to play for the Yankees or Cowboys, I decided on a career in marketing.
I have 11 years commercial radio advertising sales experience. I am certified by the Radio Advertising Bureau in New York. I also spent some time working with my brother, for whose company I still provide marketing support. I'm now with WBAA... Public Radio from Purdue. This is fantastic because as corporate support manager, I can be more marketing- and client-focused than ever before.
I am married to Colleen, who is in the athletic department at Purdue. She does numbers stuff (yuck!) plus some post-season travel for women's basketball and some football. We have two children, Courtney and Travis — both athletes! If you like pizza, we can be great friends.
