Hey There…I know what you’re thinking…is that his REAL NAME? Well, yeah. Long to short story, it’s taken from the African word Zhanee’. It means “He who goes first”. So…there’s that.


I’m a radio geek since a young guy. Never had or wanted any other job or career. Good thing this is working out so far.


Born and raised in Chicago (NORTH SIDE! Cubs fan!!!). I have been blessed to call Minnesota home for the past 20 years.

More about me:

I’m a music dude! You could get in my car and hear everyone from Stevie Wonder, Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Imagine Dragons, 2 Chainz, Bobby Brown, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent and Drake to Justin Timberlake, Justin Beiber, Beyonce, Jay Z, Young The Giant, Billy Idol, Jodeci, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Fabolous, Steely Dan. Did I mention Bobby Brown? I could keep going.

I’m a movie dude! I collect movies starring rappers (Get Rich or Die Trying, 8 Mile, House Party, Tougher Than Leather, Brown Sugar, New Jack City, Posse, Like Mike, all the Will Smith movies… I could go on…

I’m a sports dude! I am a BIG TIME Vikings (torn when we play the Bears), Wild (torn when we play Blackhawks), Timberwolves (torn when we play Bulls), Twins (do I even have to mention Cubs?), Gophers fan! Don’t judge me?

In my mind I’m a baby Chef/Master griller! YEP! I’m on the grill year round. That’s what my shovel is for…to make a path to my grill in the winter.

I’m a social media guy. You’re invited to get stupid with me on FB, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram. I share shamelessly.
Otherwise, I’m doing, planning for or thinking about the radio show on Mix 99.1.
The great pleasure of my life is bringing YOU Today’s Best Music and MADNESS on
“The Wake Up Show!
Don’t miss a minute of the FUN! The party starts at 6am weekdays on Mankato’s Mix 99.1!
