StoryCorps Phoenix: Tim Mikkelsen and Brian Koch
We are pleased to share the voices and conversations of our community from StoryCorps Phoenix. StoryCorps Phoenix is the project that records the stories of everyday people and archives them at the Library of Congress.
The StoryCorps Mobile Booth was parked at the Phoenix Art Museum and was been very busy. We’ll air a conversation each Monday on KJZZ as part of the Phoenix visit.
Today, a conversation with Tim Mikkelsen and his friend Brian Koch.
Tim grew up on a ranch in the Midwest. But he always felt that there was more to his life than raising cattle. So he decided to branch out and start a company of his own.
Tim and Brian came to Story Corps Phoenix to record their story.
