While getting a business degree at the University of Washington, Harms started working at 107.7 The End as a modulator. Within a year he was on-air as a weekend and overnight DJ, though he continued to work in the promotions department as street team coordinator. He eventually moved from nights and weekends to evening drive. He was later promoted to the station's music director, and in 2008 replaced outgoing Assistant Program Director Jim Keller.[1]

After two and half years at Revolt, Harms accepted an opportunity to return to radio full-time at LA's Alt 98.7, where he currently hosts weekday afternoons in LA and Seattle from 3–7 pm, and serves as the station's assistant program director and music director.
