tpettyrox is an alias that Jonathan Stein of Orlando (formerly Memphis) has been using since the late 1990's. Obviously, he's a Tom Petty fan, but don't let that fool you - he's a huge technology enthusiast and occasionally web designer, programmer, and developer.
As of early 2011, tpettyrox is an MBA candidate and full-time dad to a one-year-old daughter.
Involvement with Buzz Out Loud
tpettyrox makes it to the live show whenever possible - at least a couple times a week, and loves to spout comments at the on-air talent and interact with others in the chat room.
