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

"Can't come in today, boss. Doc says I have text-neck."
How's that gonna fly? Well, it might, because doctor's are now diagnosing patients with "text-neck." It doesn't take a genius to figure out what causes it... too much texting on your phone.
Dr. Adam Rodnick explains that "for every inch the ears go forward in front of the shoulders, we're putting an extra 10 pounds of pressure on the spine, neck and shoulders."
He says bowing our heads down 3 to 4 inches for hours at a time causes our spine to age prematurely. Dr. Rodnick, a Chiropractor, says he's been treating more teens lately for "text-neck."
What can you do? It's pretty complicated: Keep your head up!
