Thanks for stopping by!
Hard to believe, but I am nearing my 9-year anniversary at WIBW as your morning and midday show anchor.
In all honesty, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. It's a great place to work, from the company itself to the people I work alongside.
I have lived in Kansas my entire life. I grew up in Basehor, then moved to Topeka in 2002 to take my first full-time job in media at KTPK 106.9 Radio.
I spent the next 9 years in all types of roles, mostly as the station's Program Director and Morning Show host until made the jump to TV in October 2011.
When I'm not at work, I'm usually doing something outside as I am an avid fan of the great outdoors. I also spend a lot of time on weekends tending to the family farm, which I also enjoy very much.
Summers are a busy time of year at my house. Not only do I usually have four or five home improvement projects going, I'm also in the middle of my fundraising season. Each year I host my "Just a Buck" campaign in June, and Sporting Clays for Kids in August for Big Brothers Big Sisters. In 2020, both of those campaigns raised more than $57,000 for local kids!
I'm a member of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shawnee County's Community Leadership Council. I'm also a 2013 graduate of the Leadership Greater Topeka program and was named one of Topeka's "Top 20 Under 40" in 2014 by the Boy Scouts of America, Jayhawk Area Council.
I have a 14-year-old son Blake, who is a chip off the 'ol block as they say and he enjoys most of the same things his father does. Although, he tends to get a little bit dirtier than I do during the process.
My absolute favorite thing about being a member of the local media has been, and will always be the people. I have built so many wonderful relationships with listeners and viewers over the past several years and I hope that never ends.
Thanks for watching. Feel free to drop me a line anytime through email, Facebook or Twitter.
Have a great day!
