Trapper joined WUWM in May 2009 as an intern with Lake Effect, and has since worked with the station behind the scenes and on-air. He holds a bachelor's degree in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, as well as a certificate in Rock and Roll Studies from Peck School of the Arts.
He recently signed on as an Assistant Producer with WUWM@Nite, aiding in all aspects of the show’s nightly music programming. Dubbed “Reitman light” by Program Director Bruce Winter, Trapper hopes to engage the lineage of contemporary and classic rock 'n' roll music with WUWM listeners.
Outside the station, he can be found on stages across America performing as a singer-songwriter. Off-air, he can be heard exchanging quotes from The Big Lebowski with WUWM’s Mitch Teich.
His radio aspirations stem from hearing “W*O*L*D” by Harry Chapin, a song that chronicles the life of a transient disc jockey in search of happiness and a good song.
