I’m the afternoon host on Mix 95.7, 3p-7p weekdays! I’m originally from Fayetteville, Arkansas and most recently moved from southern Missouri, so you may hear a little southern drawl from time to time (especially if we see each other downtown on the weekend, haha!) Before moving to Missouri, I hosted a morning show in South Bend, IN; so I’m cool with snow and lack of constant humidity during the summer. I’m the oldest of three brothers and a proud uncle to three awesome nephews who are still young enough to think I’m really cool! Other than myself, the only life I’m responsible for is my freaky cat Diggy (who has 7 toes on his front paws, hence the “freaky” part.) I really enjoy getting out and meeting people; friends are the best. I also live to entertain people either with my story telling or cracking jokes. I watch anything with “swamp” in the title as well as a lot of comedies, ‘The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ is one of my favorite shows. I also truly believe that one day I will be friends with famous people (hear me Taylor Lautner and Reed Timmer?!) Truth be told, I’m really stoked to finally live in a city with more than one tall building! If you see me out and about exploring, stop me and say hi! That’s about it... wanna know more, just listen each afternoon. I’m sure you’ll learn more than you wanted.
