I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.

I now call Denver home and I dig the easy access to the mountains as well as the live music, theater and pro & college hockey. When I am not enjoying any of the previous, I love to cook, work on improving my barbecue or constantly rediscover albums I forgot I had in an ever growing music collection.
