Morning Moose


bio-mooseI am Moose. And before you say it, let me beat you to the punch: Yeah, I don’t look like a ‘Moose.’ I get that every time people meet me for the first time. I’m sorry I’m not built like Paul Bunyon with a thick manly beard. I got the name when I was a kid, a big kid, and a baseball coach (his name was ‘Bull’ Garcia) said ‘you’re big like a Moose, I’m gonna call you ‘Moose.’ And it stuck.

Some stuff about me:

  • I grew up in the military traveling with my Dad and Mom and brother anywhere the Navy said he needed to be. I like to think I appreciate different cultures and attitudes because of it. I understand that the world is bigger than me and my Iowa surroundings.
  • I love TV (like, love as in it might be a problem) especially shows like The Daily Show, Colbert Report (“Come back, Stephen!”), Justified, Breaking Bad (“Come back, Walter!”), Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, Louie, Mad Men, The Bridge, Frontline, 60 Minutes, Family Guy, American Dad and more. Told ya I have a problem.
  • I like movies but can only go to them at about 11am on a Friday ‘cause I can’t stand when people talk, text, kick, snort, whatever during the movie. SHUT UP!
  • I got a wife and a daughter who’s gonna be 3 in July.
  • Golf, woodworking and video games keep me happy and allow me to disconnect my brain from a job that can sometimes feel 24/7.
  • I also do voiceover work on the side. Maybe you’ve heard me on a couple video games (Mafia 2), internet provider commercials (charter media) or other things (Des Moines Performing Arts Center, Iowa Lottery).
  • I love getting a nap in the afternoon. I’m NOT a morning person so I gots to have my afternoon siesta if I wanna be any kind of value to my family.

That’s it. Anymore things about me will cost you a slice of pizza from Fia’s on SW9th cause their pizza is AWESOME!
I love you,

bio-taraWhen I was a little girl I got in trouble for talking too much, now I have made a career out of it! I started in radio around 17 years old and radio and I fell in love. I am so happy to get to wake up every morning and go do what I love. Radio.

A few things about myself: I went to college for Opera, so I do love to sing. I began practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu January of 2012 and have kept with it ever since. Once I was emerged into the martial arts culture, I started learning Muay Thai, boxing, wrestling, judo, etc. I am a big MMA fanatic and you will probably see me out cheering for Rousey 😊 Viva La Armbar! I am also a big fan of Burlesque (the performance art, not the movie, just so we have that clear…) I’m a homebody and love to just stay at home, watch a movie, and cook meals for friends! 😊

Some of my favorite things include; Root Beer, Jack White, Gone With the Wind, tater tots, Bettie Page, Ancient Mythology, Type O Negative, Psychology, Game of Thrones, KC Royals, and puffins!
