It seems that God had a radio in mind for me early on….as my mom told me early on I had the “gift of gab,” and it sure came in handy as we moved nearly a dozen times around the Midwest before I graduated from high school! I grew up the other kind of PK (high school principal’s kid), and couldn’t get away with much as my dad was dad at home and “Mr. Dad’ at school! Since I wasn’t an “athlete” I remember my parents telling me I’d better be able to “out-talk” those who were bigger than me…guess I learned that lesson pretty well competing in speech, choir and band, and being the school DJ and MC for most events!
Coming from a larger family and moving a lot… I can see how God was preparing me for my radio career as I’ve worked at stations in MN, WI, MI, VA and now at the New Shine.FM! My wife and I sing and speak (in our spare time) and share about our blended family of seven children and how God can take a “mess and make a message out of it.” Our kiddos range in age from 23 to 2 months and there is NEVER a dull moment at our house!
I’m so humbled that God could take a little guy from Wisconsin and use me in bigger ways that I ever thought possible! There is nothing better than spending my afternoons on the New Shine.FM playing upbeat and positive music and telling you about my family and about being in God’s family!
