I get you home weekday afternoons from 2p-7p! My dream in high school in Grinnell, Iowa was to have a career in broadcasting and work at KGGO. Attended Grand View University in Des Moines and earned a BA in Radio/TV Communications. Started at KGGO over 21 years ago in 1996 AND have done every shift on the station in the last 21 years. I love all genres of music, but especially Classic Rock and Hair. I love connecting with our great listeners in Central Iowa through music. My wife’s name is Danielle. We have been married for 24 years and have two boys, Drew and Davis (the 4 D’s!). Drew is 16 and a junior at Lincoln High School (Go Railsplitters!). Davis is 10 and in 5th grade at Jefferson Elementary (Go Jets!). I love listening to music as well as attending concerts with my wife and supporting local bands/live music. I also enjoy anything technology/electronic related, Indy racing and supporting the Iowa Hawkeyes. My favorite bands include Def Leppard (Seen them more than 10 times), Journey, Aerosmith, Van Halen (Hagar not Roth), Sammy Hagar, Eagles, REO Speedwagon, Huey Lewis & the News, Jimmy Buffet and of course anything Hair! Member of the Des Moines Parrothead Club.
