I am a self-titled “I-35 Baby.” I was born in Cedar Rapids. I spent some early years in Dallas, TX. After a few years in The Lone Star State, I returned to Cedar Rapids to attend elementary school.
I was whisked away by drunken Norsemen to central Minnesota for high school.

I started in radio during the late 90’s. I found my way to ROCK 108 in 2002. I was able to hang with so many cool people. Listeners, bands, celebrities and more. We were able to get a local rock show on the air.
I stepped away in 2012 to start my family. Now, I have come back to ROCK 108. You can hear me on Saturdays. You can also hear me during C.C’s show for the THROWBACK THURSDAY TRACK.
It’s good to be home.

I heard the news on my birthday. 3:36 p.m. Ned & Russ came back from break and said “Kind of a sad day today. We’ve lost a legend in the rock world.” When they said it was Neil Peart of Rush, my heart sank. Neil was the driving force of the three-piece from Canada. Let’s…read more »
When I returned to ROCK 108 in May of this year, I’ll admit to being rusty after a 7-year hiatus. One of the things that helped to shake some of that rust was our Throwback Thursday Track feature. If you don’t know, the Throwback Thursday Track highlights a song from years ago, that you may have on…read more »
One of the trends circulating through Facebook last week was the 10 Year Challenge. The idea is to post a photo of yourself from today and 10 years ago. I have the proverbial “face for radio,” so I chose a different way to participate in the challenge. The photo was my view behind the ROCK…read more »
