I hail from off-the-grid North Idaho, where I grew up sailing, skiing, and adventuring outside. I’m no stranger to multiple feet of snow and a reputation for stellar spuds. I have a Bernese Mountain Dog named Ilya, after the goofy Russian hockey player Ilya Bryzgalov. Look up compilations of his best quotes on YouTube: “Is only game, why you have to be mad?” I have a knack for camouflaging my nail color with everyday objects. If you search #invisiblefingernails on Insta, you’ll see what I mean. They’re all me! I’ve also got a nasty DIY habit and usually insist on fashioning my own coffee table, coat hook, Halloween costume, etc. from repurposed Goodwill or Craigslist finds rather than buying things brand new. I joined the Q Morning Show in January of 2018 and have been falling a little more in love with Maine every day since. Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org!
