I grew up in Central Minnesota, learning to enjoy all of what Minnesota has to offer - whether it be enjoying a good hot dish, heading into the great outdoors to fish or hunt, or being let down by the Twins, Vikings, T-Wolves, and Wild (I can't help it, I'm a fan). I moved to Bemidji to attend Bemidji State University and get a degree in Mass Communications (I know, who goes to a 4-year school to get into radio, right?). If you’ve ever been to any of our events, you’ve probably seen me with a camera in my hand or hanging from my neck. I’ve inherited the title of unofficial station photographer for all of the stations in our building. I also enjoy heading out and shooting outside of work too. I really love sharing my mornings with all of our awesome MIX 108 listeners! It’s really rewarding being able to inform everyone on what happened overnight and share some laughs along the way.
