I graduated from Brown College in 2013 with an Associates of Applied Science degree in broadcasting in 2013. Before arriving in Faribault, I had stops in Albert Lea and in the Twin Cities. I recently married my wife Jill and have three cats (Scrappy, Hamilton Alexander III, and Yukon Cornelious) and a dog (Grom). I enjoy snowmobiling when we have enough snow, heading up to Central Minnesota to visit my in-laws' cabin, and Twins baseball. You should be aware that I am also a Chicago Blackhawks fan…sorry Wild fans. I also enjoy a good beer and trying a new restaurant. Feel free to find me on Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat!
