My path to Channel 933 would have never happened had I not been a failure at nearly every other job I ever tried.
Pool boy, pig farmer, jewelry polisher, underwear model, carpenter, kissing-booth proprietor, financial analyst, and pizza delivery boy: failed at 'em all - until one day, I discovered radio & hounded a station so much that they hired me just so I would leave them alone.
Finally - gig that required minimal work and zero talent! Since that first job, my lack of talent has taken me on a wild-goose chase to numerous stations from coast to coast until I somehow managed to convince the big bosses at Channel 933 to hire me here in America's finest city.
CONFESSION: I'm kinda a social media addict. Currently enrolled in a nine-step recovery program,

After living in San Diego for eight months, I'd yet to even go swimming in the ocean - so naturally, I woke up yesterday and decided it was about time I go surfing.
One problem...I've never gone surfing before in my life. In fact, I may be one of the most awkward, uncoordinated human beings on the planet.
No big...I called up San Diego Surf School and set up a lesson in PB.
My instructor's name was Travis & he was awesome. He gave me this sexy wet suit to accentuate my curves and started dropping all sorts of surfing knowledge on me.
"Basically, you're gonna fall down a lot and swallow a lot of salt water...sound fun, brah?"
Before we even hit the ocean, he spent a few minutes teaching me the basics of standing up & balancing on the surfboard. I noticed it's definitely a lot easier staying on the board when it's on the sand.
After 15-20 minutes of going over the basics on dry land, it was time to get wet!
If paddling was an Olympic sports, I might have a shot.
Trying to stand up and not completely wipe out...
This next shot is deceiving...I ALMOST look like I know what I'm doing.
After an hour and a half, it was time to call it a wrap and head back to Channel 933! I woke up this morning feeling like a 75-year old man, but all in all - IT WAS A GREAT TIME & I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING IT AGAIN!
