I grew up in Iowa, on a farm, until I was 8, and then moved to a small town of 300, which was basically the country, when my parents split. I have worked in radio since I was 16, as soon as I could drive myself to a radio station in Ottumwa, Iowa. Working all over the Midwest over the last 30+ years, I have spent the last 24 years in the Fox Valley. I love it in Northeast Wisconsin! I am married with 4 kids, ages 18, 14, 10 and 8. If I never see slime again, it will be too soon. I love music, video games (when I have time), and working on our house. We have a Boston terrier named Bubbles who has an Instagram fan page with more followers than I will probably ever have: @bubblesfanpage. We would love to find another Boston in the future. I also run Gold Medal Sound and love to dj events.
Little known fact:

Bucket List: Visit Europe, ride a dinosaur, visit Washington DC and live to see the Brewers win the World Series
