I grew up in Beresford, went to college at Black Hills State, SDSU, then Black Hills State again (yes, I graduated after 7 years). Worked previously in Rapid City and Denver before moving back home in 2004 to go back to school to finish my teaching degree because I thought I was done with radio. The next thing I know I'm working at Hot 104.7 and have been there ever since. Luckily, Crystal let me marry her in 2007, we had Jackie in 2008 and Rockley in 2011, and Esia in 2013. I do nothing, play my PS3, shoot guns, hunt, and play golf (in order of which I do best).
