Born & Raised : Beaver Dam, WI - (Capricorn) Back in Oct. of 1990 I entered a contest offered on a Milwaukee radio station : "Win Your Own Hour On Our Airwaves". The contest was; Write us a letter & tell us WHY we should pick you. So...I wrote the letter & WON, and the rest, like they say, is history! Ten days later I would have my 1st radio gig. Since then I have worked in radio part time (around my full time job/s) in Beaver Dam, WI, Appleton, WI, Tuscon, AZ, and for the past 7 years, & right here in Rochester, MN. I enjoy going to concerts and supporting ((LIVE)) music, My absolute favorite, ZZ - TOP, who I've seen LIVE 27 times! Also, Little Big Town 22x, and Eric Church a whole bunch as well, plus many, many more! I enjoy my kitchen & my gas grill, growing Hungarian heirloom peppers on my deck, and playing acoustic guitar & harmonica. Working here at Quick Country is a true passion, and as thrilling & fun as it was on my first day in radio. Oh yeah, I am a proud Papa, Grand Dad, and Navy Veteran, too! LONG LIVE THE MUSIC!
