Oh, where to begin...my journey in radio began almost 7 years ago when I was trying to make it through each and every day not enjoying life as a restaurant manager in Colorado and that's when my wife told me I needed to rethink what I was doing with my life and to do something I really LOVE! Well, I had always wanted to be a sports broadcaster and my wife told me to go chase my dreams, so I did just that!
I enrolled at the Ohio Center for Broadcasting – Colorado Campus in Lakewood and graduated after 38 weeks and began my hunt for a job in a very saturated market! After countless attempts to land a job in radio I finally got the news I wanted, a radio station wanted my talents! The Big Horn Mountain Radio Network was looking for a new afternoon host on KIX 96.5 FM and someone to mentor under WAB Hall of Fame Sportscaster in Buffalo, WY, Steve Lawrence ( who has now sadly left this world way too soon).
I spent the 1st year of my career in Buffalo soaking up all that Mr. Lawrence had to offer and then it came time for me to take over as the voice of the Buffalo Bison and Lady Bison! After nearly 3 years of hitting the road with Buffalo High School and 1450 AM KBBS covering one of the top sports programs in the state, my parent company, Legend Communications, had an opening in Gillette, WY at the Basin Radio Network to be their next Sports Director and become the voice of the Camels, lady Camels and Roughriders! Well, I leaped at the opportunity to move my family to Gillette, where my wife had been commuting back and forth to from Buffalo for nearly 4 years!
Since arriving in Gillette in 2009, not only have I had the privilege to be on the air on 101.5 the Drive and FOX Country 100.7 FM, but also to be able to cover as many sports as I can from Northeast Wyoming on all 5 stations at the Basin Radio Network.
I hear the phrase “Living the Dream,” all too often, but that is exactly what I am doing every day, especially now that since I convinced my wife to follow me to Wyoming she has given me two amazingly, beautiful sons!
I mean seriously...my job is to talk about and report on sports, does it get much better than that!?
