I’ve been on the radio since I was in High School and have been with Alt 101.7 since going on the air, some time, early 2018. One of my passions is curating and producing Indies Only, which airs every Saturday from 9p-12a CST. Supporting independent and unsigned artists has been a love of mine for most of my adult life. Outside of radio, I am the play-by-play announcer for Tuscaloosa’s one and only roller derby team, the Druid City Dames. I’ve been involved with derby for the last 11 or 12 years and am so glad I’m able to use my knowledge of the sport for good! I also enjoy seeking out and trying new craft beers. At one time, my love for hops was so great, they even named a beer after me in Tuscaloosa! MonkOnTheRadio Belgian Blonde was the second best-selling beer in T-Town behind Bud Light in 2016! Ah, the memories! On my days off I like listening to records, watching documentaries, Alabama Football, traveling, and holding up a bar in a craft beer joint somewhere.
