1971-1975: I was born at Sun Coast Hospital, Largo, Florida on September 6, 1971. I learned to read by browsing TV Guide and following game shows, along with the usual suspect kiddie TV shows such as Sesame Street and the Electric Company.
1976-1989: Attended Anona Elementary, Largo Middle School, Largo High School in Largo, Florida. At LHS, I did the public address announcing for football, soccer and basketball games, served in the Spanish Honor Society, and was likewise on the Student/Principal’s Advisory Committee.
1989-1993: After a stint with a microfilm company as a document prepper, Worked in radio as a board operator/engineer, occasionally getting behind the microphone. I began at WTAN at midnight on October 8, 1989, and worked one day shy of a year there. In late 1990, I worked simultaneously at Sun Radio Network and WEND 760 AM in Brandon (with studios at the time in Clearwater), which was at that point the flagship station for SRN. I worked there until released in May of 1993, then got a job at what was then 570 WHNZ (now at 1250 on the dial in a multi-station swap back in the late 90’s), which then was a daytime all-news station, with sports programming at night.
1993-1994: I left WHNZ and wound up back to WEND, which was now WBDN, had moved from Clearwater to Brandon – no longer part of the Sun Radio Network. When that job fell apart for me, I went back to SRN for the tail end of 1993 into 1994. In the fall of ’94, I had moved to White Springs (just outside of Lake City) and was a producer at Chuck Harder’s People’s Radio Network for about a month.
1995-1996: It was back to SRN again in February of 1995, staying there seven months. It looked like I was going to get to do a talk show of my own in September of that year, but it was announced shortly thereafter that the network was going to fold on the night of October 31, 1995. I worked for Valentine Communications for a few months at the end of ’95 and the start of ’96, but I was then off to the Atlanta area for a fresh start.
1996-2000: After spending most of 1996 in Marietta, Georgia, I moved back to Largo in the late part of the year. By 1999 I was off to Charlotte, NC, living there just over a year. While I lived in Marietta and Charlotte, I also experimented living in Las Vegas in 1996 and 2000, but only lasted a few weeks there each time. During this time, I worked at Home Shopping Network in St. Petersburg and as a janitor at Walmart in Charlotte.
2000-2007: Lived at Imperial Palms Apartments in Largo, and was evicted in 2007 for reasons unknown to this day. I was cited by management for the heresy of slamming a door in October 2006, with the management of the complex didn’t even ask for my side of the subject. After several instances of disagreements there, such as one of their workers getting caught stealing a tenant’s pills in 2006, it was good to finally get out of that petty dictatorship and not deal with such crazy people.
2007-Present: After my embattled stay at Imperial life returned to normal, as I currently reside in Pinellas Park, Florida. In November of 2012, I began writing E-Books for Kindle. The first one was titled “Confessions Of A Telemarketer” which was my first creation. I’ve written four other books since, none of which peddled all that well for one reason or another.
