I grew up in the big city of Billings, Montana. Some may call me a city slicker but I have enjoyed living in the quite,beautiful Flathead Valley for the last 7 years. I love to fish and ski, as well as enjoy many outdoor activities. I have worked in radio since I was 19 and have loved every minute of it. I have been called the "mouth that roared", a bit candid at times, always open about my thoughts. I am a die hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan and really love football in general. My claims to fame are that Larry the Cable Guy tested a joke he just wrote on me to see if he should use it on stage, I accidentally played a role in John Michael Montgomery returning to alcohol rehab and I was fortunate enough to have an intimate dinner with Zac Brown Band in Vegas.
