I am an Aroostook County kid now raising my family in this beautiful corner of the world. Like many, I did the "going away" thing to the University of Maine and then came back to begin my career. Many may have heard me on the air during our high school basketball coverage as well as at The Northern Maine Fair. I start and end my day with my wife and our 8-year-old daughter. We also have a female Cavapoo dog named Harvi. I look forward to bringing you a new perspective and new stories on this journey.
