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
CareerBuilder found that 4 in 10 of us have been involved with someone at work. Most were open about the relationship, but 35% kept it on the down-low.
I highly recommend dating someone from work, by the way. You get to see them every second of every day and if you break up, guess what? They're still there! Win-win. Was that dripping with sarcasm?
On the other hand, you probably know the people you work with better than anyone else in your life! Plus, love is a nasty and unpredictable beast. It's hard to control it.
The most common industries for romance? Leisure and hospitality tops the list followed by information technology. Notice those are "non-sweaty" jobs -- I don't see sanitation engineers anywhere on this list!
What about the boss... would you date the boss? 29% of us who have dated someone at work have dated the boss. Suck ups.
