After twenty years of marketing, I have begun to focus on more profound issues in my writing. I began life in South Bend, Indiana. Then we moved to Centerville, Iowa when I was in the middle of 6th grade after my father was let go for whistleblowing on the management at Bendix. Went to school at NEMSU in Kirksville, Missouri, but dropped out to attend Brown Institute in Minneapolis for radio. Worked at KORN in Mitchell, South Dakota, York Nebraska radio station, then back to Minnesota, Willmar, where I met my wife, Susan. Four years of radio in first round; about three more after… We moved to Minneapolis in 1988, where I did standup for four years; got to know a few of the comics who went on to do MST3X. Worked at Davanni's restaurants to pay bills. Went back to school, did a little more radio in St. Cloud, now live outside of Monticello a few miles, with Susan, and our two adult daughters are getting on with their lives. Love to run in Lake Maria State Park couple times a week. On local planning and zoning commission. Economics, and racism are the two big topics I like to write about.
