My life’s goal is to make a lasting and positive contribution to this world, offering it nothing but the best of me. By listening, learning, reaching out and touching people through media, I hope to inspire the lives of others from all corners of the globe.

I’ve been told that I offer a distinct view of life. Sharing that view with the world has been a dream of mine since I was able to thrust my viewpoint onto the ears of anyone who would listen.

A hairstylist and makeup artist by profession, I have studied the entertainment industry from the outside, in. Nitpicking, revamping and redressing those people of the world who are looked at the most. As the host of He said She said for 411Radio, I will offer a slight raising of the eye brows and more than likely a widening of the eyes. It will be accompanied by an almost imperceptible inhalation. Your experience will add a beat to your heart, like a quiet exclamation point. Within an hour the reaction may have passed, but not without leaving its mark.



Meet the Professor! Miriam-Webster describes a Professor as one that teaches or professes special knowledge of an art, sport, or occupation requiring skill... and getting schooled on what’s happening in the latest in sports is just what you can expect from our Professor!

Professor graduated from SMU as a math major with a minor in Radio Communications/Journalism so when the opportunity presented itself to become co-host for our 411 Sports Talk Radio show, it was like a dream come true. Throughout it all, he remains steady and true to his love of all things sports and radio.

Get what’s happening and test your knowledge with him and the crew every Tuesday from 7-9PM CST!
