Born and raised in Oregon, Jeff is a graduate of Portland State University with a BA in Communications and BS in Social Science.
As a multi-faceted entrepreneur he has worked in marketing, spawned a clothing line, hustled shoes, handled guest relations for a fancy pants restaurant and played semi-semi-semi-professional basketball.
However, it was his time in the radio business (KNRK, KGON, KFXX, KWJJ, and KOTK) that gave him true direction.
“After high school I bounced around junior colleges playing basketball before giving radio a try. Not knowing how to break into the business, I called a request line and asked how I could get a job in radio. The DJ said I should send in my air check. My response? ʻWhat's an air check?ʼ...so clearly I feel qualified to host a show.”
About the Show:
"This is something we have been thinking about for a while and it was time to make it happen. The show can be summed up in one word: ever-forward. (hyphenated words count...donʼt be a jerk) You want two words? Fine. Structured chaos. We know where weʼre going, but we are laying the bricks as we walk down the road. Join us. Both of you."
Currently employed as an account manager for a commercial waste management company, Gary went to college at University of Oregon and left with a BA in English. Set with very non-specific, low range career goals he headed out into the world.
After time as a fry cook, greens keeper, bartender, social worker and teacher he found himself living on a farm on Sauvie Island with his wife and two kids.
“I like to write and make people laugh and think. I like sharing the adventures of my son, hoping to bring more awareness of autism and hopefully help others who deal with autism sort it out. I also like cheese a great deal.“
About the Show:
“Jeff and I used to work together and, although we hated each other (still do), we developed a great banter with humor. Jeff's an idea man and I like to ride his coat tails. Jeff invited me along for this ride and I am privileged and excited to be a part of it. My evil plan is coming together.”
