I am a graduate of St. Cloud State University - Class of 2015. I grew up in the small town of Clarkfield, MN from 1989-2008. I began interning here at Townsquare Media in January of 2014 doing on-air and event stuff. After my internship ended, I continued to linger around the building because I enjoyed doing so (and no one kicked me out). I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time as I was hired on as a full-time reporter for WJON in August 2014, for which I am very grateful. A little about me: I love sports - especially football (I bleed purple and gold), I am a huge nerd about movies, I hate pina coladas and can't stand getting caught in the rain, and my favorite food is steak.
