I was born in Fargo and grew up on a ranch south of Bottineau, ND. I started in radio on KBTO-FM Bottineau as a sophomore in high school. I attended Minot State University and began working part-time for KIZZ-FM, then moved over to K-Hit 97. I've been married to my wife, Sheri, since 1992 and we have two kids. I like to spend my free time officiating youth basketball, reading, some hunting and lots of time on the river in the summer.
