My broadcast career began as a simple radio script for a stock brokerage firm that morphed into what became a 34 year career in radio advertising and digital marketing.
In my early years, I would write and produce radio ads for clients–including some that never quite made it on the air! (One featured Hane’s cotton and sheer briefs in the Garden of Eden getting Adam & Eve’s take on them! Another was a “fake” ad about Weston, Missouri that was “founded during a brawl in 1847”, and got it’s name because it was soooo dispicable that the Missouri legislature pushed it to the edge of the frontier).
I worked with Classical 96.5 KXTR, Smooth Jazz 106.5 The City and Newsradio 980-AM, KMBZ stations (KMBZ, the radio station Rush Limbaugh began his radio career with in Kansas City).
For over three decades, I have had the pleasure of representing the various businesses I have worked with as a brand ambassador at weekly Chamber of Commerce events, Rotary functions, concerts, fund-raisers, etc–providing professional brand representation.
In addition, I’ve utilized my experience in marketing and social media promotion of the events to build brand awareness and customer engagement.
I began my high school life cutting lawns in my neighborhood.
I then became the merchandising supervisor with classic rock band, Shooting Star during my college years–in addition to announcing for KCAD and KRBC radio in Abilene, Texas.
With expertise as an announcer, production professional, copywriter and sales executive–I applied my acquired skills into the new realm of digital marketing for Small Business Bank.
As Marketing and Social Media Coordinator–I expanded reach and measurable results with the combination of:
- Facebook/Twitter advertising “ad creation”, prospect targeting/placement.
- Facebook/Twitter/Linkedin on-going “targeted” audience building posts
- Customer blog creation/posting
- Cartoon video writing, production and posting
- Newsletter design, creation/posting
- Email marketing creation/posting
- Podcast creation/posting
- Graphic design content
- Customized surveys for credible customer feedback
Using small business growth services and new digital media weapons, professionals can gain more referrals, traffic and results!
It’s the combination of sales, marketing, business and digital media experience that make On Demand Advertising Solutions a potent partner in your business arsenal vs. the competition! It’s an entrepreneurial dream I can’t shake!

Linkedin Article: Lessons I Learned On My Journey To Eagle Scout+
I was thrilled to be President of the Shawnee Mission Rotary Club in 1999-2000 and I am Paul Harris Fellow.
At age 14, I received the Eagle Scout award with gold, silver and bronze palms–achieved by less than 1/2 percent nationwide.
I taught two summers on Staff at Camp Theodore Naish and was a Brotherhood Member in Order of the Arrow.
Years later, I was honored to discover that I was the highest-ranking Scout in the 25 year history of my Troop.
