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
Wife: Kelcey Carlson, anchor/reporter WRAL-TV

Kids: Two! Charlie, born in 2007, and Kellen, born in 2011
Making New Years Resolutions are easy, keeping them...that's the tough part. Psychology Today has a few tips on actually making it through the year while accomplishing your goal. They have 12 tips, here are the ones I found interesting:
Check the strength of your commitment: What do you gain? What do you trade off? Is the gain worth what you give up? If you choose something that is not that important, it's usually better to choose nothing.
Plan for success: Goals are easy, but they aren't achieved if we don't make a plan. If you want to lose weight, what should you do first, second, and third?
Watch out for the Wheedler: This is the part of your brain that whispers 'eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die.' Ya know, the evil part of your brain. Flip things around. Beat the Wheedler at its own game: 'Let's start now for we can always play later!'
Reward yourself: Create incentives to support your progress along the way. Follow a designed plan with short-term rewards that are part of your daily routine, such as drinking coffee or reading the newspaper.

A woman was rushed into the hospital in an ambulance as she was just about to give birth to twins. At the hospital the lady was in such pain she had to be sedated. A couple of hours after the babies had been delivered, she woke up and asked to see her children. "Doctor, could you bring my babies to me so I can name them?" The doctor replied, "You don't need to worry about names, your brother has already named the "Why did you let him name them, he has no sense! What did he call the little girl then?" "De-nise!" replied the doctor. "Oh that’s not too bad, I thought you were going to tell me he'd named her something awful! So what did he call the little boy?" "De-nephew."
