How long have you been with Twin Cities Live? I started with Twin Cities Live in February of 2008, several months before it went on the air for the first time.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Initially I wanted to make movies but fell into Journalism in college and really enjoyed it.

What is your favorite thing about working for Twin Cities Live? I just love bringing positive stories and events to the community.

What one goal do you still aspire to achieve? I’d love to write a book. I’ve been noodling on that for years. One of these days I’m actually going to do it.

When you’re not at work, what do you enjoy doing? I am an actor and improviser in the Twin Cities – theater is my best creative outlet. I also do a lot of DIY and techie projects outside of work – from building furniture to building websites.

Who inspires you? I love “Weird Al” Yankovic for his music, but he’s also been a genuinely decent human being his whole life. He’s had the same band for decades. That says something about a person. I like people who are good people.

First concert you ever attended?  Who would you like to see in concert that you haven’t seen yet? Warrant/Trixter/Firehouse triple-bill – also got my ear pierced that day. Big day. There isn’t really anyone I’d like to see in concert – it just isn’t my favorite event. Tons of theater productions I’d love to see though.

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had? There’s a place in Joplin, MO where my mother grew up that has been a staple throughout her life and mine too. You go there for “spaghetti red”, which is served up in minutes. It’s like a chili mac but no beans are included (the correct way to make chili) and I’d eat it every day if I could.

If you were reincarnated as any celebrity, who would you choose to be? Never really thought about that – probably an entertainer of some kind. I just enjoy making people laugh.
