I grew up on a small farm in southern Minnesota. While I did my share of farm work, I quickly realized that I wasn't cut out to be a farmer. At 15, I had the opportunity to work at a small country music station, in Jackson, Minnesota and soon realized that I wanted to work in radio. I remember practicing on my father's cassette recorder while trying to imitate Casey Kasem's Top 40 Countdown!
While in high school, our family moved to Rapid City, South Dakota where I continued my young radio career at Hit 100 FM. After graduating high school, I worked full time in radio, but also dabbled in some sales and marketing jobs. Eventually, God opened the doors for me to work in Christian radio. I was in love! I knew this is what God made me to do. I anchored the morning show at Z88.3 FM in Orlando, Florida for 12 years. I met my wife Missy and spent the first 14 years of marriage in Florida raising our family, working in ministry, and building our lives together. We love spending time together as a family, doing everything from watching movies to going on adventurous camping and mission trips. Our desire is to be used by God wherever He gives us the opportunity.
