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.

With only a few hours to go until the tournament tips off, you might be scrambling to get your brackets done for the 1st Ave Draught House Pub and Eatery Million Dollar Bracket Challenge. There's a million ways to pick your selections. Some people choose to simply follow what other people pick. For example, you might choose to match President Obama's picks, just released last night. After all, he's a big college basketball, and might know a thing or two you don't. However, after his reveal, many Iowans are a little bit flustered, especially to the North.
