My radio career started over 15 years ago, right here at Powell Broadcasting and I’ve been here ever since. I’ve made my rounds to all our stations, having served as a DJ, producer, commercial writer, website guy, and even salesman. I’ve produced a few local talk shows, high school games, sports shows, X’s baseball, Bombers basketball (remember them?), Musketeer hockey, and even Imus In The Morning when he was on KOOL back in the day.
Outside of work, I’m a Dad, drummer, song writer, producer, mobile DJ, sports PA announcer, as well as a hockey Dad, player, and coach. You can find me at all the Musketeer home games. Besides Musketeer hockey, I love Jr. Musketeer hockey, Metros hockey, Hawkeye hockey (yes Iowa has a hockey team), North Dakota hockey, St. Louis Blues hockey, and Sioux City Viper’s hockey. Yes I love hockey!
I also love music and that is why I’m in this business. Growing up my Dad had a huge record collection of all the classic KOOL artists and I would dig them out and listen for hours. That’s how I grew to love classic rock and playing those hits for you on KOOL. I studied music in school and even took a few courses in rock, blues, and jazz history. I have played drums for over 35 years in many local bands and even have recorded a few CD’s. I’ve performed with many famous acts, including the Ozark Mountain Dare Devils, Les Dudek, and Canned Heat, just to name a few. I am a strong supporter of live music in Siouxland and if I’m not at the ice rink, then I’m at a local venue either playing drums in my band or listening to some other local bands.
I like stupid comedy movies, self help books, drum magazines, live CD’s and concert DVDs. Oh and my favorite kind of music? All of it! Thanks for tuning in.
