Hey everyone! I am Nick Chrestenson and I grew up in San Jose, California. I moved to Missoula, Montana when I was 18 so I could attend the University of Montana. I ended up graduating with a broadcasting degree from the UM School of Journalism and now I spend most of my free time golfing with friends and family. Nothing beats the summer weather in Missoula and I try to soak up as much of it as I can. I am still adjusting to the cold winters, but I find solace in binge watching TV shows on Netflix. I also spend a lot of time watching and talking about sports with anyone who is willing to participate.
