I've been at Missouri S&T since it was called University of Missouri-Rolla. I came here in Fall of 2004 and joined KMNR the following year in Fall of 2005.
I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in December of 2008 and a Master's in Geophysics 2011.
I've been the Business Manager of the station, then the Station Manager, then the Personnel Director.
Now I'm just a simple DJ, trying my best to rock the airwaves hard once a week for the 2 hours I'm allotted.


I love a lot of different music styles.

Long songs with shifting structure, twisting riffs, throat-tearing screams, and alternating atmospheric and harsh sections are one of my favorite types of music.
See: Isis, Mouth of the Architect, Rosetta, Mastodon, Baroness, Between the Buried and Me, Cult of Luna

I also like bands that make spacey, beautiful soundscapes that you can close your eyes and drift along with.
See: God is an Astronaut, Caspian, Explosions in the Sky, 65daysofstatic, Red Sparowes, Pelican, Mono, Russian Circles, Jaga Jazzist

I also like the oddball alternative rock band that can't quite be classified well.
See: Nine Inch Nails, Muse, Thrice, The Mars Volta, Circa Survive, Dredg, Coheed and Cambria

And then there's the occasional ear-bleeding music that's so harsh, complicated, and layered that you reel from it for hours afterwards.
See: Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan, Alexisonfire, Darkest Hour, Opeth, Lamb of God
