I’m a veteran who hosts the statewide radio talk show Montana Talks. For nearly two decades I’ve worked in Montana politics and broadcasting, including time as the State Director for Ryan Zinke’s Congressional offices in Montana, and as the communications director for the gubernatorial campaign of now-Congressman Greg Gianforte. Prior to my political work, I grew a statewide radio show in Montana from 10 signals to more than 20 radio signals across the state. My work has been featured nationally by the Fox Business Network, 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 and most recently the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. I enjoy combining my real-world background and Montana roots, with a love for journalism.
