I was born and raised in Huron County and plan on staying here for life. I grew up in the countryside just outside of Belgrave but I’ve lived in Goderich for fifteen years. I’m no stranger to everything local. I love walking the trails, the festivals, the beach, the sunsets and the great community and family atmosphere. I studied music and theatre in college and have continued to be a part time rock star in the band “boy in december” and also have a solo career as a singer-songwriter.
I am married to local artist, Natalie Hussey, and have three amazing kids, Ocean, Liv, and Kai. I always wanted to be a DJ and used to pretend to be one when I was a kid using plug-in intercom systems placed throughout the house. I never dreamed I’d ever do this as a job. I am beyond thrilled to be waking up with Huron County on Country 104.9 and have really fit in great with my new radio family.
