HOMETOWN: Wolf Lake, IL (Population 300… counting dogs & cats)
CAREER HISTORY: When I was in high school, my friend’s dad owned a radio station. I begged him for a job and thinking it would be awkward to reject his son’s friend, he hired me. Since then I’ve worked in Dayton, Tulsa, St. Louis, Sacramento, Kansas City, and now Indianapolis.
FAVORITE LIVE MUSIC VENUE: Any small intimate venue where I can sit and be sung to, like a coffee shop.
FAVORITE CONCERT I’VE EVER ATTENDED: Garth Brooks, The Eagles, or Fleetwood Mac. Tough to decide between those 3.
MOVIES: Groundhog Day is my favorite movie of all time. I also never met a documentary I didn’t like. I recently got a great one from the library about asparagus farming. If you check it out (you know you want to), let me know what you think!
TELEVISION: Curb Your Enthusiasm is the funniest show that’s ever been on television. There you have it. The matter is settled. Other than that… any “whodunnit” murder show (Dateline, 48 Hours, etc), and PBS Frontline (see previous note about my love of documentaries).
LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME: I was named after John Lennon’s son Sean, and I once ran for political office (and lost).
FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANTS: Tolon and The Golden
TYPICAL BREAKFAST: I don’t usually eat breakfast (don’t judge me).
FAVORITE ROADTRIP FROM Ft. Wayne: Chicago. A show at 2nd City + dinner at a fun trendy spot = a great weekend! Or back home to the St. Louis area. I crave St. Louis style pizza and have to go get a fix every now and then. If you’ve never had STL pizza, let me show you the way 🙂
LIKE TO COOK? Yeah… I’m trying to master the art of BBQ on my smoker (low and slow baby… low and slow).
PETS: A golden doodle rescue named Brady.
THREE OF MY EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS: Coffee wtih stevia, La Croix, water with organic lemon juice (I’m very beverage centric).
THREE THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE: 1) Go the airport with no destination in mind and just buy a ticket to a random place on the spot. 2) See the Pacers win an NBA championship. 3) Learn how to change a tire (I seriously don’t know how, so if you see me on the side of 469… please stop and help.
