I’m the web director for a nationally syndicated morning show. Before this, I worked in politics for many years as a producer at a news talk station, WXNT, and then as the Executive Director of the Libertarian Party of Indiana. I then worked in marketing for the Englehart Group and the Advocates for Self-Government.

Despite my position in mass media, I love podcasting and all aspects of new media. I host the We Are Libertarians podcast. I'm a news junkie, a Christian, a libertarian and a voracious reader. I love food, comedy, tech, IndyCar, psychology, writing and collecting and organizing information. I also have two cats, Mittens and Cornelius.
