Monday-Friday, 2pm - 6pm
I'm the newest member of the Wild Country 99 family, traveling over 1,600 miles to the Upper Midwest from Seattle, Washington.
My love of country music started at an early age- listening to Loretta Lynn eight-tracks in Mom's Cadillac. I was an architecture major at Auburn University in 1997, but a greater interest in campus radio 91.1FM WEGL shook any visions of CAD drawings right out of my career path.
In 16 years as a radio and television broadcaster, I have worked for legendary country stations KWNR & The Coyote in Las Vegas and K99 & KYGO in Colorado. My favorite artists include Rascal Flatts, Jason Aldean, Emerson Drive, Sara Evans, Florida Georgia Line and Little Big Town. I'm more than excited to be back in the tradition of country radio and look forward to bringing my “Wild West Show” to the good folks of Central Minnesota.
Born and raised near the foot of Mount Shasta in Northern California, I've lived all over North America- from Vancouver during the Winter Olympics to New Orleans during Mardi Gras. I come as a Minnesota greenhorn, but really look forward to ice fishing, hunting, playing pond hockey, and seeing Paul Bunyan all for the first time.
I have a running total of 31 nieces and nephews so far! I'm also probably the tallest hockey goalie you’ll ever meet- standing 6’9” on skates and was probably recruited as Wild Country 99's annual tree topper, WE Fest people finder, and center for the company basketball team.
Above all duties and fun times ahead in working for Wild Country 99, I mostly look forward to being a part of and serving our community.
