I was born in Davenport, Iowa and arrived in a cold, dark new world where a Barbra Streisand album was #1 on the charts and disco was in its heyday. After growing up in Maquoketa and graduating from UNI, I’ve been in radio off and (mostly) on since 2000. I’ve been in the Cedar Rapids area since 2006 and have been having a blast being part of the KRNA air staff since late 2012. My favorite KRNA artists are Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Van Halen & Tom Petty.
