I'm a native of Minnesota having grown up in the Twin Cities but Nebraska is my adopted home. I've lived here longer than anywhere else. After radio stops in Hastings and Grand Island, I started my Lincoln radio career in 1985, and the Capital City has been home ever since (with a year and a half in Oklahoma City...but let's not talk about that!)
I'm one of the biggest Minnesota Vikings fans on the planet and also follow the Twins, Wild, Wolves and University of Minnesota Gophers. What can I say? It's in my blood! I'm also a huge Husker fan and have had the opportunity to be at several Husker Football Bowl games and National Championship Games. Many home football Saturdays I'm hosting or attending our tailgate parties at the Embassy Suites! Go Big Red!
Away from the radio station, I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids. We have a high schooler and middle schooler who keep us busy with their school events and extra curricular activities. As a family we enjoy swimming, biking, camping, hiking and exploring our national parks! One of our biggest achievements is reaching the top of Colorado's 14,259 ft. Long's Peak mountain! Talk about a view!
I love to play golf whenever I can and enjoy playing softball. I'm proud to be a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, and I've been a home brewer since 1992. I have fun brewing up my own beer, root beer and the occasional cream soda. I've been playing the drums since I was 10 and recently have been learning to play acoustic guitar.
