I live in Sioux Falls, SD. After 37 years in broadcast and multi media, after programming one of the top news/talk radio stations in America, and after breathing live, fun, relevance and pride into an underachieving and amateurish statewide public radio network, I’m living proof that no good deed goes unpunished and good guys end up under the bus. Not that I’m bitter :). I’ve won an Emmy Award for my voice work, and wrote a music and history TV special that was nominated for another. I’m a cancer survivor, a recovering addict, and beginning a new chapter in life as a Peer Recovery Coach to gratefully pay it forward. Husband since ’87, and father since ’93. Most of all I’m terminally curious and love going interesting places, doing interesting things and meeting interesting people. Restoring antiques, repurposing rather than throwing out, discovering history and documentaries are among my passions. I was born in Forestburg, SD, the “Melon Capital of South Dakota”. I currently own my maternal great-grandmother’s house there. I’m right behind the bar, so if its the weekend, you’re stopping for a refreshment and the garage door is up, stop over.
