I'm the digital managing editor of NJ1015.com, helping bring everything you love about New Jersey 101.5 online. A Jersey boy for the last 30-plus years, I've been part of newsrooms throughout New Jersey and Rhode Island. I believe Central Jersey is a thing, I don't care if you call it pork roll or Taylor ham, and while Springsteen's just fine, I'd rather be go to Asbury Park to meet some local band none of us have ever heard of. I like good hikes and great beer, and have an unhealthy addiction to expensive photography equipment. Seriously, someone stop me.
