Having nieces and nephews is great, but.....

    I'm a quick witted, sharp tongued radio producer and server. Born in Cleveland and raised in the fine suburbs of Chicago. I've been in the service industry just long enough to have lost a little bit of faith in the human race and wonder how some people make it through this world without wandering into the street and getting hit by a bus.

I'm on there from time to time sharing my infinite amount of useless knowledge.
