I'm your ex-patriot Canadian host of 'The Morning KIIK Start' weekdays from 6-10am. I've been living in the Quad-Cities for 18 years now. I'm a self-described 70's and 80's 'musicologist,' who lives and breaths the greatest hits we plays on KIIK. When I'm not 'musicologing' (it's a word now!) I enjoy working on my family's century-old Craftsman home, or watching the guys on This Old House work on someone else's. D-I-Y porn. I can also often be found making an ass of myself with It's A Mystery in live, interactive comedy whodunit shows. I'd love for you to wake up with me each morning on KIIK... That didn't read as creepy as it sounds.
