Wow Where do I start?.. Well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completely the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were conceived. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as an on call (not even part-time) radio personality. It’s obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, more so than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...The Father, Teacher & Mentor

What’s up bro, I have just come out of an abusive and controlling relationship where my girlfriend did not trust me. She was very insecure and very jealous of any ex partners I had. I loved her more then anything in the world amidst all sorts of accusations and horrible lies she would tell about my family and ex partners. I did not want to lose her but eventually after 3 years I stood up to her when she tried to come in between me and my kids. How could any woman not understand the bond between children and their parents? This was the last straw for me because I’m not compromising my relationship with my kids and she could not take this and our relationship was finished. I thought she would get better but in fact she got worse. I’ve giving up a relationship with the only woman I love, because there is no end to her jealous rage. I tried to do all I can to convince and prove to her, that there is only her for me. I came to realize that I would be dealing with this for the rest of my life if I continued. The only person who can help her is herself as she has to admit to her jealousy issues and get serious help, without it I don’t think she will ever have a relationship where she will be happy and trust any guy. I am leaving the only woman I love for my own mental health and sanity. I just have some advice for the ladies, if you could you please tell the them, that not all men are that guy. Every man is not your ex, who hurt you, cheated on you or whatever. Check your baggage at the doorway of a obvious good guy. Losing someone hurts even more, when it’s you who has to give them up.
