Some folks might think you sound familiar when they hear you speak in person. Any reason why that might be?
Well, if they listen to 1460, KXnO during the hockey season, they might recognize me from calling the Iowa Wild games. I like interacting with our fans; they’re really passionate about hockey and they pack Wells Fargo Arena during our season.
You’re a Waukee resident. How did you land in the neighborhood?
My family relocated with the Minnesota Wild’s AHL team from Houston to Central Iowa, and after renting in West Des Moines for a few years, we purchased a house in Waukee in 2016.
Tell us a little about your family.
My wife Cara and I have three boys, ages 7, 5 and 3. They’re all crazy about sports, especially hockey.
When did you first find your passion for hockey?
I can remember watching hockey on TV as a kid. I played a ton of street hockey and roller hockey growing up, and then I began playing ice hockey in middle school.
In this holiday issue, we share stories of giving our time to help meet the needs of others. Is there any charitable action you take this time of the year?
I’m hoping to volunteer at a local shelter during the holidays to serve food or help out however needed.
