When did you start at MAGIC? I've been in radio for almost 20 years but started at MAGIC in March of 2013.
Favorite type of food? All and any. There isn't much I won't eat but I especially love Italian food. Of course French Fries and Ice Cream are high on the list. Nothing low calorie!
Favorite MAGIC artist? So many! Some favorites include Pink, Adele, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys.
Favorite new TV show? This is Us.
Favorite drink? A Cosmopolitan or Blue Moon (or both).
Favorite thing to cook? Wait, let me stop laughing. I'm an awful cook. My favorite thing is making reservations.
Favorite place to vacation? Probably Negril, Jamaica. Beaches, Drinks, Steel Drums…what's not to love?
What would your alternate career be if you didn’t work at MAGIC? I'd like to have Savannah Guthrie’s job on the Today show. Her salary would be nice too…
What’s the worst job you ever had? Working in a tobacco field the summer of my freshman year in high school. I grew up in Western Mass and spent that summer "sewing" leaves in a 100 degree barn. This will motivate anyone to go to college. Working the drive-through at Burger King ranks a close second.
Who is your celebrity crush? There are many. Adam Levine, John Stamos, Tom Brady and THE ROCK!
Dogs or Cats, or Neither? I prefer dogs but I'm highly allergic...sadly.
Favorite place to take tourist friends when they visit Boston? To a show at the Opera House. Dinner in the North End. Shopping on Newbury Street.
