I lived in Montana for 23 years but am known as a traveler and adventurer. I enjoy being surrounded by a mix of nature and small city vibes. I love to fly fish, shoot traditional archery, watching live sports, doing art projects and anything else I can fit into the day. I have worked in radio since I was 19 and have loved every minute of it. I have been called the "mouth that roared," a bit candid at times, always open about my thoughts. I am a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan and really love football in general. My claims to fame are that Larry the Cable Guy tested a joke he just wrote on me to see if he should use it on stage, I was fortunate enough to have an intimate dinner with Zac Brown Band in Vegas, took Ashley Larry from the "Chappelle Show" fishing and I had a song written about me and produced out of Seattle. I also starred in a movie with the Backstreet Boys, Otown, Nysync ( two members) and 98 degrees.
