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

Kids: Two! Charlie, born in 2007, and Kellen, born in 2011
Wow...the heat is relentless. Don't mess with it! Experts have tips to survive this summer blast
Stay away from caffeine and alcohol. They make you pee more than you should -- draining your body of fluids. Not smart
Get inside (duh). Limit your exposure to the heat during its peak hours, generally between 11am and 2pm. Outdoor activities should be done early in the morning, or later at night
Check the humidity. High humidity adds several degrees to the heat index, making it harder for your body to cool off. Your sweat doesn't evaporate over skin like it should in hot weather when the air is saturated with water.
No brainer: DON'T LEAVE YOUR KIDS OR PETS IN THE CAR. Do we even need to go over why?
Check on grandma. Elderly folks have a harder time dealing with the heat due to age and the medication they take that can dehydrate the body. Make sure gramps is getting enough water.
