Started in radio at the age of ten by broadcasting to my Mother in the kitchen. My father built me a radio station in the den. I've been part owner of an A.M. station in Vancouver, and hosted my own Jazz show on different mediums, including on my own network now with Positive World Radio and our exclusive Just Jazz channel. We have 13 shows on the channel with musicians as hosts, some of whom are the most knowledgeable on the planet. Fell in love with Jazz by first listening to Wes Bowen from KSL in Salt Lake City. My current role as CEO and Executive Producer for PWRN is to develop more high quality shows on our Just Jazz Channel. Our intention is to be the premiere digital radio destination for intelligent conversation, world class music and cool jazz! www.pwrnradio.com
