Hey, Iowa! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my profile. I was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, where I spent all of my life (except for the two years I was overseas in the military). In June of 2017, I moved to the Corridor, and immediately fell in love with the area.

Other than rocking on KRNA, I also enjoy being a musician, singer, actor, and a really good cook.
