Jeff caught the radio bug while he was still in high school in his hometown of Springfield, IL. He worked part-time at WTAX and WDBR and thought he wanted to be the next Jack Buck, until he realized how difficult play-by-play really is! Jeff attended college at the University of Missouri where he worked at the legendary KCOU college radio station. He worked at a great group of stations in Columbia, MO from ’95-’06 until The Corner brought him to Charlottesville in November of 2006.

I’ve loved my time here, esp. recording Corner Lounge sessions & hosting Brighten The Corners (Tuesdays 10-midnight).  I’m also grateful to be able to cover music festivals for Corner listeners including SXSW, Bonnaroo and more!  Among other things, Cville has taught me to embrace my inner mandolin lover, and it’s also where (in 2008) I met my amazing wife Elizabeth!  Along with our 2 cats – who love everyone, except each other – we live in Crozet, VA and last year we added the best little bundle of joy to our little spot in the world.
