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.

Things You “Shoulda-Coulda-Woulda” Done Today
As Benjamin Franklin once said, "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today". Pretty good advice from a Founding Father and a kite flying, bad *ss inventor. Of course, the thing humans most commonly "put off" are CHORES. It's true! Procrastinating chores is inevitable, but there are also some extracurricular activities that we don't allow ourselves to enjoy in the moment, either. No time like the present to get out there and enjoy yourself and in between, finish those particular tasks/chores around the house, and maybe some involving your vehicle.
