Curtis is the Web Design/Content Production person for Tri States Public Radio. Curtis Maintains and updates the website for TSPR, produces content for online and on-air use, including elements for pledge drives, online campaigns and daily voicing duties weekdays from 5:00pm- 5:00am and both Saturday and Sunday. Curtis was born in California, and spent his younger years out west. He later bounced around the midwest until he was in 8th grade, when he and his mother settled in Belvidere, IL. Curtis attended Belvidere High School, graduated in 1996. Then attended WIU where he started off as a law enforcement major, before finally figuring out that radio was where he wanted to be. As a child he would record songs off of the radio and put together his own little one man radio programs that only his mother and a few others would ever hear. Following a visit to a radio studio in Rockford, IL when he was in 5th grade the seed of radio was firmly planted in his mind, though when he first attended college he was wary of pursuing a career in radio until he landed a late night spot on 88.3 The Dog his junior year. Following that experience he decided to switch majors and began to pursue his long held dream to hear himself on the radio on a daily basis. In Curtis’s down time he enjoys drawing and painting, spending time with his wife Marjorie and his two sons Aiden and Cole, playing guitar, caring for his African Cichlid tank and helping his eldest son care for his fish and reptile terrarium.
