What's up, Internet? I'm Drew, and I'm a radio DJ...who also blogs. Which is awesome. Not many kids decide they want to be a radio DJ when they grow up, but I made that call when I was about 12 (after I'd grown out of the traditional "astronaut," "scientist," and "fireman" phases). I left my hometown of Aurora to come study journalism at CSU, determined to make my dream come true. That was 10 years ago. Now, I'm on the air, I have my very own blog, and I don't think I'd leave Fort Collins if you paid me (well, you'd have to pay me A LOT). Basically I'm living the dream, and it's amazing. So thanks for listening to me on the radio, and thanks for reading my blog!

Fort Collins Water Restrictions Still Likely Despite April Snowstorms [VIDEO]
