I'm a geek of all sorts. Comic books, sci-fi, technology, video games and most of all pinball. I'm also a big fan of classic game show like The Price is Right, Press Your Luck and Match Game. Ever since I was a kid I always wanted to be Bob Barker. They passed me up for Drew Carey, but I'm now hosting a TV game show on WPXT called Kickstart where I work with a giant chicken and donkey. After working with Meredith and Lori all these years, barnyard animals is a nice break.
