I grew up in the Twin Cities, and as long as I can remember I wanted to be on the radio. After graduating high school, I immediately went to work in Grand Forks, ND at KZLT for a few years before moving back to Minneapolis to work as the Assistant Producer for the Dave Ryan Morning Show at KDWB (101.3 FM). After KDWB I did nights at WXPT (104.1 FM) in Minneapolis for just over 5 years before deciding it was time for a change, so I moved to Duluth to become the Program Director of WWAX, I worked there for about 5 years before coming to work here at MIX 108. I live in Superior with my wife Mindy, daughter Rose, son Harrison and dog Rawko. In my free time I enjoy playing with the kids, DIY home improvement projects, photography, and enjoying all the Twin Ports has to offer. See ya around town and THANKS for listening!
