Hometown -- St. Peter, Minnesota, by way of Farmington, Minnesota.
Alma Mater -- Minnesota State University, Mankato
-- What's your favorite part of your job?
I love that I am able to combine my business expertise into my work on a daily basis.
-- What's your dream story?
I don’t have a dream story, although I have been told to write an auto-biography on multiple occasions.
-- What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I had always wanted to be a businessman growing up. I have always admired the “Dapper Don” way of dressing and growing a business.
-- What got you interested in (news, sports, weather)?
I have always been a natural born competitor, so it makes sense that I got into sports at an early age. When I had to stop playing sports due to genetic health complications, I got really into news because I always enjoyed the feeling of being the first to report a story because of the competitiveness, which was similar to the feeling I got from playing sports. I hope to bring my Bulldog mentality and work-ethic of outperforming my competition to KEYC News 12 for years to come.
-- Favorite Book?
I am a big fan of the Calvin & Hobbes comic books. They remind me of a simpler time in my life. In fact, I still have the first Calvin & Hobbes book that I purchased at my First Grade Scholastic Book Fair.
-- Have you been told you look like someone famous?
People tend to tell me that I look a lot like Eminem. I’m still waiting for the day that people say Eminem looks like me.
-- If you could spend a week anywhere, where would you go?
I would go to Italy and purchase a plot of land and begin preparations on my future estate.
-- If you had access to a time machine, where and when would you go?
I would go to the early 20th Century because I'm always being reminded that I was born 100 years too late.
