Now playing play

I’m a married father of two who loves nothing more than sitting down to watch the game (any game, as long as I can gamble on it) with a cold beer.

What’s Your Favourite Song on CJOC? I can’t hear “Your Love” by The Outfield and not sing as loud as humanly possible.

How Long Have You Been In Lethbridge? I moved here in 2002 at 17 to attend the University, that didn’t last a full year (oops) and then moved over to Lethbridge College where I took the broadcasting program and met my wife. After a few years in Saskatchewan and Northern Alberta, we were back in Lethbridge in 2007 and it’s where we call home.

Where’s Your Favourite Place to be on a Friday Night? At home with the music loud having a dance party and playing mini sticks or basketball with the kids. After they go to bed, sipping on one of my homebrews on the deck or basement with my wife or a couple friends. Before all that, say Friday afternoon, walking my dogs around Nic Sheran Lake.

Favourite Pizza Topping? Meat….give me all the meat! Specifically ham, pepperoni and bacon…

Beatles or Rolling Stones? It would have been the Stones until I saw The Beatles “Love” Cirque show in Vegas a few years ago. Somehow, that gave me a whole new appreciation for their catalogue.

Madonna or Cyndi Lauper? Did you know that Cyndi Lauper won Best New Artist at the 1985 Grammy Awards? The video for “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” won the inaugural award for Best Female Video at the 1984 MTV Video Music Awards, and made Lauper an MTV staple. Lauper appeared with professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, who played her “bodyguard” and would also later make many appearances as herself in a number of the World Wrestling Federation’s “Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Connection” events.  Madonna though…definitely Madonna.

Betty or Veronica? I have thousands ,literally thousands, of Archie comics in my house and every toilet in my house has a stack of Archies on top of the tank. I feel like if ever there were a question my life has led me to answering, it’s this one. I could turn in a term paper arguing the merits of each subject but the Veronica section would be about a paragraph long while Betty would take weeks for you to digest. Betty….by a landslide!

CFL or NFL? Why does it have to be “or”. How short sighted are we? As a fan of football…CFL. Go Riders! As a fan of gambling and fantasy sports…NFL. Go Rams!
How Would You Get Off the Roof of the Water Tower? Here’s a better question, why would you be on the roof of the water tower without a plan to get down?
What’s Your Favourite Southern Alberta Event? When the temperature gets cold enough for the rattlesnakes to go away. I love taking the kids to Whoop Up Days and me before kids had a blast playing slow pitch and partying at Cornfest.

You’re at the Drive-in… What Movie is Playing? I haven’t seen a movie in public since 2007. That’s probably something that should go in the next section though. That being said, Roadhouse…it’s always going to be Roadhouse.

3 Facts You’d be Surprised to Know About Me:

  1. I do 75% of the cooking in my house and am actually pretty good at it.
  2. I played competitive high school tennis in B.C.
  3. I was horrendous at math in high school. Like really, really bad. I was doing grade 11 math in grade 12 for the 2nd time and I wasn’t going to pass. My teacher, great lady, asked what I wanted to do with my life and I told her radio. She knew I would never need what she was teaching and let me slide.

I’m an average-at-best wife, nowhere near mother of the year to our twin toddlers, dog & cat mama and originally from Saskatchewan. I moved to Lethbridge in the fall of 2003 for work and think this is actually one of the greatest places in the whole world. I managed to get my sister to move here a few years after me, and we’re still trying to get our parents to stubble jump into Alberta so we can all live closer together.

What’s Your Favourite Song on CJOC? Madonna’s Like a Prayer

Where’s Your Favourite Place to be on a Friday Night? My couch with a glass (or bottle) of wine… we’re going to watch a movie but I fall asleep within the first 20 minutes. It’s been a long week.

Favourite Pizza Topping? Black olives… it’s a weird answer, I know, please don’t hate me.

Beatles or Rolling Stones? Stones!

CFL or NFL? Rhythmic gymnastics

How Would You Get Off the Roof of the Water Tower? I’d use the grappling hook on my Official Batman Fan Club Utility Belt and rappel down to safety.

What’s Your Favourite Southern Alberta Event? Street Machine Weekend, every single part of it is fantastic! Hunkering down on 3rd ave on a hot Friday night for the cruise… the burnt rubber smell that’s stuck in your hair at the dash over at Exhibition Park on a sunny Saturday… and all the Show & Shine’s… the entire weekend is always a blast!

You’re at the Drive-in… What Movie is Playing? Godzilla… I smuggled in a few beer in the trunk too so come say HI!

3 Facts You’d be Surprised to Know About Me:

  1. I have 10 tattoos, all above my waist … everything from the Batman logo to a giant Unicorn.
  2. Jordan Karst officiated our small little Covid Wedding in 2020.
  3. Cotton Candy, of any colour, is my absolute favourite food.

I’m just your average mid 20’s guy who loves everything from trivia to scotch to oxygen and is terrified of everything from Canadian geese to re-heated lettuce to monopoly.

What’s Your Favourite Song on CJOC? Van Halen – Why Cant this be Love
How Long Have You Been In Lethbridge? Age 0-20, and 23-present (24 years and counting!)

Where’s Your Favourite Place to be on a Friday Night? Pre-pandemic – Enmax Centre! Pandemic – Gym then home for a movie! Summer time – A patio with 2-4 friends for beer and pizza!

Favourite Pizza Topping? Cheese, duh. It’s on every pizza (other than that, pepperoni)
Beatles or Rolling Stones? Beatles. No… Stones. No… Can’t decide so I’m forming a super group with George, Ringo, Mick and Keith.

Betty or Veronica? Never seen the movie (read the book?) but I would be happy to host a mud wrestling exhibit to determine a winner. Failing that, whoever’s scent more closely resembles lilacs and craft beer in springtime.

CFL or NFL? What’s a CFL?

How Would You Get Off the Roof of the Water Tower? I’m sure watching one CFL game would do it.

What’s Your Favourite Southern Alberta Event? Ribfest and it’s not even close.
You’re at the Drive-in… What Movie is Playing? Double feature, True Romance followed by the unrated version of True Romance.

3 Facts You’d be Surprised to Know About Me:

  1. -I’m a huge alligator nerd, I know every genome, every subspecies. (Not really, but if you know where this quote is from, you know what my favourite show is).
  2. I’m (seriously) a huge math nerd and I love anything to do with numbers.
  3. I HATE routine and relying on things. I never drink caffeine, I never go to bed at the same time, I never drive the same route to work.
  4. (bonus fact) I’m never sick, I’ve never had the flu and I’ve never missed a day of school or work due to being sick.
    Okay stop reading. You’re gonna jinx it.
