Longtime music fan, I didn't catch the radio bug till college up at Winona State University in Minnesota. After that, well as they say, the rest is history. Once radio gets in your system, there's nothing else you can think of doing. And I'm glad that road has landed me here in Cedar Rapids. I'm not a born Cedar Rapidian, but am a Chicago burbs implant. First radio gig was doing mornings on Soft Rock KREZ in Cape Girardeau, MO, so being back on the format is a welcome home. Since that start though, I've become a father of 2 (9 yr old daughter Mikayla and 5yr old son Nathan), and husband to an amazing wife, Lauren, for 12 years (my HS sweetheart). We also have a cat, although we're dog people at heart. Besides here and Cape Girardeau, I've also in small town Illinois, and have been on almost all formats, including Country, Classic Rock, "Oldies", and Pop stations, but like I said before, being on KDAT is like a return to my roots. I love being a part of closing out your workday and getting you home to relax and unwind.

4 Great Reasons Why the Cedar Rapids/Marion Area Is One Of The Best For Education

When I first moved here, one of the biggest things I looked into as a parent was education ratings.  It helped to determine not just the city I wanted to live in, but especially in the case of Cedar Rapids, what PART of the city I wanted to live in.  When you have kids, or are planning on kids, it's an important decision.  And from the latest reports, we should all feel very happy with how our school compare to the state.
