I was born in Solon, Iowa and went to Washington High School. I got into the radio world at age 17 and fell in love with it. I spend way too much time on the internet and watching movies. My favorite book is Slaughterhouse 5, and my first job was a farmhand on a horse farm. I consider myself a bit of a history buff, and Eli Young Band is my favorite band.
