Helloooo! Welcome to MY PAGE! My own little chunk of the World Wide Web. It's very exciting.
My career started while in college at a little Top 40 station in Clare, Michigan (the Gateway to the North). Not only was I a weekend DJ, but I was also the station janitor. No kidding! I did what was needed to break into the biz, even if it included scrubbing toilets.
After Clare, it was on to Saginaw, Michigan, a decade in Kalamazoo (yes, there really is...), north to Grand Rapids, and then south to Greenville, where I'm excited to take over afternoons on MY 102.5!!!
I met the love of my life in Kalamazoo at a wine festival. Kelcey told me on that first night: "You'll never meet a girl in Kalamazoo." Apparently not... that night! But I won her over with my charm, wit, and a great deal of wine. We married in September of 2001. She's my best friend.
Born: Troy, Michigan

1. Become a Trailblazer: The great outdoors offer just as good a workout as any gym. "First thing I would say is check out Trails.com," the fitness expert recently told us. "It'll give you great running, biking and jogging trails and then, of course, you can do all of those things."
2. Hit the Playground: Playgrounds aren't just for whipping video-game addicted kids into shape. "Go to even a kids' playground and you can run sprint trails and suicides and you can do pull-ups on the jungle gym."
3. Take a Dive: If you like a little variety in your fitness regimen, you can get creative and take your workout off dry land. "Get outside and go kayaking, paddle boarding or take surfing lessons if there is a body of water in your immediate vicinity." Not only will a change-up work new muscles, but it will prevent you from getting into a rut and possibly ditching your routine altogether.
