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
Pets: Dog- Phil Stubbs!
Kids: Two! Charlie, born in 2007, and Kellen, born in 2011
Ever feel like you're the dumbest one in the office? You're not alone. A new study found women don't speak up in small group meetings if the folks around them are smart. You know the feeling -- everyone has brilliant ideas except you, and the more you speak, the dumber you sound. That's all in your head, but it's hard to convince yourself when it's happening! Source
They call it the "Doorway Effect," and I'd tell you what it is...but I forgot. Oh, that's right, it's when you suddenly forget what you wanted to do. For example, you realize you need a pair of scissors, so you run downstairs and as you walk into the kitchen, you totally forget the reason you came downstairs! What's behind this sudden memory loss? Literally, it's the doorway. Experts say your visual perspective changes when you walk through the doorway and it takes time to recalibrate your thinking. That's why your mind experiences a blip. Now, what were we talking about again? Source
Grab this app...soon. We'll finally have an app that solves the annoying reality of photobombing! We've all been a victim of a photobomber. It usally happens on vacation when you and your sweetie line up for that perfect shot, and the picture ends up being you, your sweetie, and some dufus walking past your picture and smiling at the camera. A new app called Remove for Android removes those people from the background of your photo. It will be introduced at the 2012 Mobile World Conference in Barcelona next week. Imagine the other uses you could get out of this app -- instant ex-boyfriend/ex-girlfriend remover!
The Stir asked actual living, breathing guys to give away the secrets that they're really into you...and here's what they had to say.
He bothers to call
He wants you to meet other people in his life
He remembers all the quirky little things you say
He's looking at you -- a lot
He does things your way
Put a check mark next to at least 3 and he's in love. Put a check next to all five, and prepare to get a restraining order. :)

A young girl came home from a date looking sad. She told her mother, “Charles proposed to me a few minutes ago.”
“Then why are you so sad?” her mother asked.
“Because he also mentioned he was an atheist. Mom, he doesn’t believe there’s hell!”
Her mother replied, “Marry him anyway. Between the two of us, we’ll show him how wrong he is.”
