I discovered folk music in High School when my mother dragged me to a Joan Baez concert and I was hooked. A haunter of coffeehouses during my college years, after moving to KC I found both The Foolkiller and the Missouri Valley Folklife Society, produced concerts with them, and gradually worked my way into KKFI where I now help Bob, Diana, Kathy & Mark bring you Foolkiller Folk.

But wait – there’s more! Also a big fan of live theater (which I studied in college) I became a supporter of Kansas City Actors Theater (I’ve seen every production they’ve ever done) and have been lucky enough to be able to combine theater and radio as KKFI’s producer for KCART.
