I created this site when my position at SiriusXM was eliminated in February 2014, with a full refresh in 2019. As I built the site in 2014 I really appreciated what an amazing run it was, starting from being a Department of One, all the way to having a full comedy platform that included partnerships with Comedy Central, Jamie Foxx, and Jeff Foxworthy's Blue Collar brand.
I'm always interested in talking about cool ideas and opportunities, and am available for additional consulting work.
EVP Programming for Cadence 13 (2015-present)
I am EVP Programming for Cadence13. We work with Crooked Media, Pushing Industries, TenderfootTV Sports Illustrated, Seven Bucks Productions (The Rock!), James Andrew Miller and many others in the podcast space. I'm the primary partner liaison with the creative teams behind Up and Vanished, Crimetown Presents, Revisionist History, (previously) UFC and many others.
VP Comedy & Entertainment - SiriusXM (2004-2014)
The comedy channels at SiriusXM were always among the most listened to radio stations. In addition to programming and handling the day to day operations of the comedy channels, the entertainment part of my job allowed me to play in the sandbox with great properties like Star Wars and San Diego Comic-Con. Clicking on any of the logos in this section will open up a portfolio of work associated with each branded radio station representing a decade's worth of work with big brands and big stars.
Both Howard Stern and George Lucas told me my work sounded great. That's not bad!
Programmer/Host - Slacker Radio (2015-Present)
Following SiriuxXM I have kept my hand in comedy as a consultant to Slacker Radio. I program Country Comedy, Urban Comedy, Today's Comedy (and other stations in the genre), and host The Weekly Comedy Thing.
Fun Fact: I am the most experienced comedy programmer in the world. When I started it was a format only Sirius and XM were doing, and the guy who did XM's has retired.
The Other Things
At The Shark Deck I work on what I call my "solo albums" including hosting The Weekly Comedy Thing podcast. I teach classes about radio/audio at Fairleigh Dickinson (the first two hours is asking what we even mean by "radio" these days). I worked at WOR New York for a decade producing Dr. Joy Browne and John Gambling, was the Acting PD on 9-11-01 and left there to go be the PD of WLIE Long Island, a talk station with big aspirations but not as big of a budget in the end. And I completed the 2014 New York City Marathon but don't ask me about it because I won't shut up.
