Growing up, being on the radio is all I ever dreamed of doing. I started as the bear mascot for a station in my hometown of Wausau, Wisconsin, that aired Chicago Cubs games. I finally DID end up on the radio, working weekends and overnights while I earned a BA from UW-Eau Claire. I worked on the air in Eau Claire for nearly 20 years. After I met my beautiful wife, we got married (in Jamaica), and moved to Rochester in 2012. In my spare time, I like to get out on the mountain bike, catch House Hunters on TV or try one of Minnesota's many great craft beers. While I'm a Twins and Wild fan, I do confess to rooting for certain MLB, NFL, and Big 10 teams from a state just east of here. (You can take the boy out of Wisconsin, but you can't take the Wisconsin out of the boy!)
