What's up, Internet? I'm Drew, and I'm a radio DJ...who also blogs. Which is awesome. Not many kids decide they want to be a radio DJ when they grow up, but I made that call when I was about 12 (after I'd grown out of the traditional "astronaut," "scientist," and "fireman" phases). I left my hometown of Aurora to come study journalism at CSU, determined to make my dream come true. That was 10 years ago. Now, I'm on the air, I have my very own blog, and I don't think I'd leave Fort Collins if you paid me (well, you'd have to pay me A LOT). Basically I'm living the dream, and it's amazing. So thanks for listening to me on the radio, and thanks for reading my blog!
