I was born in Lake Zurich, Illinois, and have lived all over the country. A midwestern kid at heart, I’ve lived in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa, and now South Dakota. I finished high school in North Carolina and graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone. After a brief stint in the insurance industry, I began in sports radio as an intern in 2015 with ESPN 730 in Charlotte, North Carolina. From there, I’ve spent time with Learfield in Winston-Salem, NC, as well as gaining experience in local radio in small-town Iowa. My wife and I met in college at App State and were married in 2017. Now, we have two children and a dog, and are excited to call Sioux Falls home!
