I grew up in Central Minnesota, learning to enjoy all of what Minnesota has to offer - whether it be enjoying a good hot dish, heading into the great outdoors to fish or hunt, or being let down by the Twins, Vikings, T-Wolves, and Wild (I can't help it, I'm a fan). I moved to Bemidji to attend Bemidji State University and get a degree in Mass Communications (I know, who goes to a 4-year school to get into radio, right?). If you’ve ever been to any of our events, you’ve probably seen me with a camera in my hand or hanging from my neck. I’ve inherited the title of unofficial station photographer for all of the stations in our building. I also enjoy heading out and shooting outside of work too.
