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

DO TELL YOUR PARTNER YOUR FRIENDS WITH AN EX
Do let your current boyfriend know that you are friends, or would like to become friends, with your ex. If you have nothing to hide then...you have nothing to hide! But if your partner found out you were spending time with your ex without telling him, he would definitely suspect foul play.
DON'T BECOME BFF'S
In most cases, your ex is not best friend material. It's cool to see your ex casually and occasionally, but he's likely not going to be the person you immediately call when you need to vent about something, or the person whose surprise birthday party you plan. There are limits to being friends with an ex.
DO TELL YOUR PARTNER EVERY TIME YOU SEE YOUR EX
No, you don't tell your partner every time you see Christina or Tanya or Lana. But your ex is not Christina or Tanya or Lana. It's different. There's history there. Even if your partner knows the general fact that you see your ex sometimes, he'll still suspect foul play if even one hang out session goes by that he doesn't know about.
DON'T TALK TO YOUR EX ABOUT PROBLEMS WITH YOUR CURRENT BOYFRIEND
You can and should tell your ex that you have a new boyfriend. And you should tell him what he is like. But your ex is not the person you should be running to for relationship advice, or even to complain about your current bf. Your current bf would feel completely disrespected if he found out you were telling your ex about the intimate details of your relationship.
DO ASK YOUR EX ABOUT YOU AS A PARTNER
While you shouldn't be talking to your ex too much about your current relationship, feel free to explore more of what went wrong in your relationship with that ex. Ask where you can improve as a girlfriend, what your annoying habits were, what you should understand better about men. He's your ex! He is a great source of information.
DON'T GLOAT ABOUT YOUR EX
Take it easy on bragging about your ex's huge successes, or reminiscing on something hysterical he said at lunch. Your current bf is bound to be sensitive about you hanging with your ex, and if you're too enthusiastic about just how great of a person your ex is, he'll wonder if you still love him.
DO INTRODUCE THE EX TO THE CURRENT BF
Let your current man see how harmless it is that your are friends with an ex by planning a group hangout. He'll see there's no chemistry left, and he can finally stop wondering what the "competition" is (it's not really competition, of course).
DON'T SHARE ANYTHING WITH YOUR EX YOU'RE NOT SHARING WITH YOUR CURRENT BF
If you're opening up to your ex about personal details of your life that you're not telling your partner, sorry to say it but that's an emotional affair. Essentially, you're letting your ex get closer to you than your current man. Your current bf should be one of the first people you're coming to with personal matters.
DO MEET YOUR EX'S NEW PARTNER
If your ex happens to be dating someone new, make a point to meet her. Your current bf will find it odd if your ex has totally hidden away his new girlfriend and suspect he still has feelings for you.
DON'T SET UP A DOUBLE DATE
You're going to feel inclined to set up a double date with you, your ex, your man, and your ex's current girlfriend. But don't. There's way too much opportunity for somebody - if not everybody - to feel uncomfortable.
DO DIVERSIFY HANG OUT'S
Don't just grab drinks one on one all the time with your ex. This could start to look like an emotional affair to your current bf. Think about it: with your female friends, you go to movies, you go out in groups, you take classes together. It's not normal to only have intimate hang out dates.
If you want somebody to text every funny thought that crosses your mind and every cute meme that crosses your computer, text your mom. Constant communication with your ex will look peculiar to your current bf. How would you like to see another woman's name pop up on your current's phone twelve times a day?
DO UPDATE YOUR CURRENT BF ON YOUR EX
You're bound to be hesitant to talk to your current bf about your ex, but if you stay silent after hanging with your ex, your current guy will wonder if you're hiding something. Just relax and update him on your ex just as you would if you'd just seen your sister or your aunt.
If you want to be allowed to keep hanging out with your ex, resist any and all urges to compare your current bf to your ex. Even in the heat of a fight, you are not to bring up how your ex treated you better in x, y or z respect. If you do that, you can say goodbye to your nice friendship with your ex. Your partner will just hate him then.
