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

I can hear you!
In utero babies aren't just relaxing waiting for their real world entrance...they're actually listening to you. It turns out that unborn babies can hear a lot more than we think they do. The fun starts about 30-weeks in, and the last two months is when baby can recognize mama's voice.
Get the message? You have to start spelling out your swear words even BEFORE the baby is born!

CEO's with daughters pay more
If you're a woman, the best thing for your paycheck is your CEO's daughter. According to the Wall Street Journal, “The gender of a male CEO’s children is significantly linked to the salary of his employees."

Yep, your fork punishes you for using it too much. After you eat, the fork then passes along all the information to a special app in your phone.
