I host Montana's leading statewide radio talk show "Montana Talks." Aside from serving in Iraq and Afghanistan with the military, I also spent over two decades working in Montana politics and broadcasting. This included a stint as the State Director for Ryan Zinke’s Congressional offices in Montana, and as communications director for the gubernatorial campaign of now-Congressman Greg Gianforte. Prior to that, I grew a statewide radio show in Montana from 10 signals to more than 20 across the state. My work has been featured nationally by Fox Business, The Drudge Report, Huffington Post, Politico, and others. As an officer in the Army National Guard, I served four military tours overseas including time in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. I enjoy combining my real-world background and Montana roots, to hopefully give listeners a side of the story they don't get to hear anywhere else.
