As a passionate music fan who loves (really loves!) to talk, I’m surprised it took me so long to end up in radio, but my broadcasting career didn’t begin until my 30s. After my friend Mike Chase asked me to do a show with him on a dare, we ended up working together as “Mike and Amy” for almost 2 decades, even racking up a CMA award for “best major market personalities” along the way. Aside from broadcasting, I also work as a copywriter for national brands and as an emcee/auctioneer for fundraising events. I’m proud to serve on the board of Youth Music Project, a fantastic program that provides lessons for kids regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Seeing firsthand the difference that music makes in these young peoples’ lives is life-affirming, and also a lot of fun.
While I’ve lived in New York, LA, Dublin, Paris, and DC, I was born right here in Portland and there’s truly no place like home, if you ask me. I’m so grateful to All Classical for giving me this chance to connect with the people of my beloved hometown in new and exciting ways.
