I was born in the southern U.S. and raised by a 21 year Marine Corps Vietnam Vet and his hard working, successful, Tennessee born bride. They set the bar pretty high for their three kids...so I decided to just walk under it and go into radio at age 16. After years of "town to town, up and down the dial", I made my way to Billings in 2005. That turned out to be the best decision I ever made. It lead to a great job, and the love of my life, my daughter, Eliana. I'm happy to be raising her in a place with a great mix of conservative family values and progressive ideas about inclusion and embracing the differences in people (provided they are not too liberal or from California).

Newsflash: Diabetes Sucks

Traveling For Montana Pet Owners
When I was looking for a place a few years ago, I had about six places to choose from unless I wanted to just try and sneak him in. I get it. A bad cat can cause a lot of damage to carpets, wood floors, cabinets, etc. Of course this means that many of the places that do allow cats are already in p…
