Referred to as "Sully" throughout my youth, I contemplated using it as an "on-air" name. Needless to say this never happened, but it's still fun to mention and there's still time! As a graduate of the University of Montana, I first ventured my way onto the air waves as a television reporter. Not long after, I dove into the radio industry. I enjoy media as a career and the potential it has to inform and support the community. Other than consume comfort food nightly, I do have some hobbies. I'm a huge fan of forensic documentaries, chick flicks and mobster movies (I don't understand the combination, either) Plus, I love concerts! Rock, country, jazz, classical, reggae, alternative, electronic, R&B, hip-hop, rap, folk...pick the genre and I'm there! I especially love outdoor concerts and another great love I have of the outdoors, involves long walks with my incredible dog and the occasional human. For many years now, I have tested the waters as a performer in live, local theatre, and whether it be studio artwork, ballet, jazz or modern dance, I'm a big supporter of the arts. As for sports and no matter the level, I'm a huge fan of basketball, track & field and baseball. Any or all of the above, of course, is only important and possible with the bond of family and friends. Here's to those special bonds for everyone.

You Put “What” On Your Pizza?
In life, nobody agrees 100% across the board. While some people agree on politics the same group might not see eye to eye on music, movies, sports and most of all...PIZZA! Deep dish maybe, but not a deep topic, right? Seriously though, it's easy to say that we get a little bottom sore when friends and family members don't agree with the toppings we choose for our beloved pizzas. Then there's the case of being a closet pizza lover, who will only add and enjoy their bizarre pizza toppings in the comfort of their homes.
