I was born in Duluth, Minnesota and raised on Steve Martin comedy records and Jello Pudding Pops, the latter was responsible for my Jabba The Hut Phase in 6th grade. My only surviving schools are Grant Elementary (Go Grizzlies!) and UMD (Go Bulldogs!), having attended both Washington Junior HS (Go artsty apartment building!) and Duluth Central HS (Go...Condos?! ). Radio has always been in my life with my dad programing WGGR and later doing The David John & Granny Show for WDSM. My first job in radio was in college with John Michaels and a fun crew at KZIO, where I learned a lot, and I have stayed in it ever since. Working with the amazing staff at B105 is only topped by all the cool listeners I get to meet along the way. It's always fun to be at events and meet everyone. You may also find me playing softball, volleyball, bowling or running the Gary Bjorklund Half Marathon or random 5Ks. If you do, make sure to say hi and we can grab a beer together.
