I host Montana's leading statewide radio talk show "Montana Talks." I first got my start in Montana politics and broadcasting while working in the US Senate as a student at Howard University over 20 years ago. Shortly after the 9-11 terror attacks, I moved back to Montana and joined the military- eventually serving on deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. I continue to serve as a Lt. Colonel in the US Army Reserve. My first job in the news business was stuffing newspapers for my grandparents at the Glasgow Courier as a little kid. From a stint in TV at Q2 News, to working in politics, and hosting a statewide radio talk show for over a decade- it’s an honor to make sure Montanans have an opportunity to be heard. Previous political stints include serving as a legislative aide to Senator Conrad Burns, communications director for now-governor Greg Gianforte’s 2016 campaign, and as state director for Congressman Ryan Zinke.
