I grew up in: West New York, NJ & Bergenfield, NJ
I went into radio because: I wanted to write for a living and I thought it would be so cool to have fun doing it!
My first radio job was: WSUP at UW-Platteville
Best way to relax: Good book and a cup of hot Irish tea with milk and organic sugar.
If I had more time: I’d have more dinner parties.
Favorite childhood memories: Walking in and around the streams to watch the sunbeams filter through the trees, looking for frogs. Listening to records under my parents’ bed. Playing dollhouse with Aunt Lisa. Family picnics at the lake. Camping at the Jersey shore.
Guilty pleasure: Cooked vanilla pudding with cold cream on top!
Secret wish: Own a mansion on the lake in Fish Creek, Door County.
Favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. Great food with great company and if you do it right, the preparation and clean up are as much fun as the meal with the gang.
If I could bring something back to Madison: Ovens of Brittany restaurant.
Hobbies: Split myself between coming up with new baking recipes and growing flowers.

I am so very lucky that the Yahara River Trail is just walking distance from my home. It’s wild enough to have deer, hawks, fox, snakes and and now the cranes have returned. It is along the
When I first met the owl you see here, he was very high up in the 100-year-old willow tree on the Yahara Trail, where I often walk. I was absolutely marveling over and over about meeting him,
This little fellow was sooo interested in eating his soggy weeds that he did not even notice me standing there taking his picture. He lives right there on the Yahara River. I often see his tracks in
Even though I think all flowers are beautiful, I like white best. I’ve been in the floral business for many years, and yes, colors are spectacular at times. But as an artist and designer, when I work
Yes, it has been dipping down into nearly double digits below zero outside, but my little pet of 29 years has been holding his own, in his own sunbeam. This is not a Photoshopped image—Joe regularly does
