Referred to as "Sully" throughout my youth, I contemplated using it as an "on-air" name. Needless to say this never happened, but it's still fun to mention and there's still time! As a graduate of the University of Montana, I first ventured my way onto the air waves as a television reporter. Not long after, I dove into the radio industry. I enjoy media as a career and the potential it has to inform and support the community. Other than consume comfort food nightly, I do have some hobbies. I'm a huge fan of forensic documentaries, chick flicks and mobster movies (I don't understand the combination, either) Plus, I love concerts! Rock, country, jazz, classical, reggae, alternative, electronic, R&B, hip-hop, rap, folk...pick the genre and I'm there! I especially love outdoor concerts and another great love I have of the outdoors, involves long walks with my incredible dog and the occasional human. For many years now, I have tested the waters as a performer in live, local theatre, and whether it be studio artwork, ballet, jazz or modern dance, I'm a big supporter of the arts. As for sports and no matter the level, I'm a huge fan of basketball, track & field and baseball. Any or all of the above, of course, is only important and possible with the bond of family and friends. Here's to those special bonds for everyone.

Remembering the Conflict as Eight Men are Honored
It wasn't until I was 7 years old, that I realized visions of this all consuming matter, filled our black & white portable television set. It was there where I saw, on 1 of the 3 channels we possessed, reporters and anchormen talking about some kind of war in a place called Vietnam. According to the Anaconda Local Development Counsel, Vietnam veteran Mickie Nazer is credited for spearheading the Memorial project in Anaconda. Through the help of grants and donations, the Anaconda Vietnam Era Veterans Memorial Association was able to effectively raise funds needed for the project.
