Birthplace:
Green Bay
Education:
Luxemburg-Casco High School. Associate Degree in radio broadcasting from Gateway Technical College in Kenosha, WI.
First Job:
Cleaning tables at my uncle's restaurant.
Family Ties:
Most of my family lives close by and I've got a younger brother and two older sisters.
Hobbies/Interests:
Reading, biking, and trying to keep up with the latest music charts.
Guilty Pleasure:
Food in general. It seems no matter where I work, one of my job titles is "Garbage Disposal", I get to eat most of the leftovers.
Favorite TV shows/Movies:
Movies: Currently, "Radio" and "Miracle". There are not too many modern shows that I like, but I do enjoy reruns of "Home Improvement". I'm happy watching just about all of the old sit-coms. Same with movies, I like pretty much any classic comedy.
Pets:
I guess I could share some pet peeves with you, but I can't think of any off-hand.
Favorite Artist/Song:
Although I host the hard rock show, I really enjoy the organic sounds of Needtobreathe and Downhere. Switchfoot would probably be the "edgiest" artist I enjoy listening to outside of work. My favorite Q-song constantly changes, but I think I'll always like "Let Us Love" by Needtobreathe.
How did you end up working at the Q?
I was looking for a way to use the production skills I learned in college, so I asked if I could be a volunteer. As I began taking on more projects, I became an offical staff member. Thank you Jeff Rydell for teaching me so much.
Favorite Bible Passage:
Romans 12. I will probably still be working on those qualities as long as I live, but you can't achieve anything unless you try.
My prayer for Q-90:
That we continue to encourage listeners to volunteer and help those in need throughout their community and around the world and that we be good role models of that behavior.
If you could add or change one thing to the Green Bay area, what would it be?
I'd like to improve the air quality sometimes. If the wind is right, you'll get a whiff of air that has the odor of gym socks that haven't been washed in a month.
Who did you want to be like when you were growing up?
A host of any TV program. I was always trying to hog the spotlight when the video recorder was going.
If you could meet one person past, present or future who would it be and why?
Any one of the presidents because it would be interesting to talk to a person who can look at a multitude of situations from many prospectives.
If you were granted one wish, what would it be and why?
Q 90 has already granted me a big wish but letting me host Nights on The Rock. All of the feedback on the show has been encouraging and I feel challenged by my role at the station.
What was the last book you read, and when did you read it?
I just finished "Boy Meets Girl" by Joshua Harris and it took me forever. There are a ton of books I would love to get into but I read very slowly so my waiting list is longer than that for Packer season tickets.
If you could ask one question, what would it be, and how would you answer it?
I don't think I'd ask any more, The questions here already reveal quite a bit about a person.
If you could spend a whole day with somebody famous, who would it be and why?
Either Bob Uecker or Paul Harvey because these are both people who work hard in the radio industry, but they still have a healthy sense of humor and are humble about their success.
What's your favorite candy and soda?
5th Avenue candy bars and any brand of root beer.
