I grew up just outside Detroit and have worked on the radio ever since I was 19.
I'm told it was an inevitable career choice as my mom has pictures of me as a kid turning any household item into a microphone (experience shows that big wooden soup spoons work best).
I attended college studying theatre and political science at the University of Michigan.
I enjoy green shoes, zipper hoodies, chicken wings, green olives, beer, McClure's spicy pickles and games.
When I finally grow up one day, I want to own a small French Piano Bar and be skilled in the art of tasting fine wines.
Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough offered up some friendly advice to Justin Bieber. As a now seasoned veteran of the spotlight and a father of two, Howie had this to say:
"...I would probably try to tell him to take a couple of pictures with his shirt on so that in twenty years from now, he's not going to be upset that had all those pictures without his shirt on. Oh and don't spit on your next door neighbour if you don't have to..."
I think that's some valid advice, don't you??
He goes on to note that he has seen "Bieber-types" make mistakes and lose their spotlight quickly, so it's all advice offered in good taste!
Backstreet Boys, still classy as ever.
