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

Chris I want to put this out here for your Black male audience. I want these men to hear and understand that some women just refuse to dumb ourselves down to be in relationships with Black men. I have seen some of the most disrespectful behavior in Black men, who simply choose not to grow up. It was once said that old fools, were once young fools, but today it’s even crazier to see the old fools, doing the same things as young fools. With all the Black guys I dated in my whole life, it felt like in order for us to have a long relationship I have to dumb myself down to the point where I expect everything to be less than. Being and acting hood rich is foolery. Black me stunt, but don’t travel. They’re rich, but own nothing. They love hoes and hate Ladies. They feel being caring and courteous is somehow swaggless behavior. It’s disheartening to know that these are the most examples of men for our young ladies, who grow up wanting love from these so called men. I will not do it, I will not fall for foolishness, by music, by comedians, entertainers, or everyday men, that make up our society of Black men. I am only 23, but I will never in my life give into what some think is love for the sake of having some man in my life. I won’t disrespect myself, why would I allow a man to. By the way, is anyone singing about love anymore? Just booty song after booty song. I guess this is all we’re offered as woman, the next twerking, stripper song. Way to prepare our young ladies for the future. I hope you will read this, I think our Black men need to hear it, both young and old.
A Forever Classy Lady!!!
