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

It's Cyber-Monday... the day when the country blows off work to shop for Christmas gifts online. The greatest thing about Cyber Monday is you won't get a concussion fighting for one of the door-buster TV's!
Cybermonday.com breaks down some of the deals, which include an extra 5 to 15% off at Sears.com, 15% off and free shipping at macys.com, and 15% off everything at Kohls.com
Amazon.com has been offering up great deals every ten minutes until they're gone.
Some tips for today:
Grab some coupon codes that could save you some extra cash. CurrentCodes.com, and Retailmenot.com have pages of codes...
A great website to check out is PriceGrabber.com which will compare prices to make sure you're getting the best deal
If you're using an app to shop, make sure it's an app from one of the biggies. Amazon.com has no interest in stealing your credit card info
Use your credit card to make a purchase. That way, you can fight any suspicious activity. If a debit card number is stolen, there's not much you can do once they grab your money.
