Welcome to my very first post on my brand new updated website!
The site was designed as a platform to aid in my job search.
It’s hard to believe that after six successful years hosting mornings at Classic Hits 107-5 FRANK-FM/Portland, ME that I no longer get to wake up at 3am and go talk to Frank Nation about my life, their life, pop culture, and current events, play silly games, and laugh until tears run down my face.
But to quote the #1 overused phrase I’ve heard in the past 72 hours…”Everything happens for a reason.” So I’ve made that my new mantra, and I’m moving forward with a positive attitude.
One thing that I guess I always knew, but didn’t think about much, is that I’m truly blessed with great friends. Take this website for example. After my buddy Chris heard the news that I was no longer working, he immediately volunteered to get a new site going to help with the job search. Which is good because I know absolutely nothing about how to build one of these! My dear friend Donna, the Graphics Queen, texted and asked to re-tool my resume and references. A great Program Director, and a guy that I really like a lot, Tom Cook called with solid advice on making my audio demo sound better.
Of course I’d be remise if I left out my wife Charmen. She believes that I’m much more talented than I really am. That’s probably because for years she’s heard me say how great I am! Thank God she believes it because her encouragement pushes me to apply for jobs that I probably have no business applying for. And my kids, Jack and Nick, inspire me to follow my own advice about doing your best and never giving up.
Thanks to all of them, and to all of the other friends that I didn’t mention by name. You guys are appreciated more than words can say. And thank you for dropping by the site and reading this.
You guys rock!
