I am a Digital Content Producer, News Reporter and Show Contributor for 95.3 WBCK. My career in broadcasting began in 1999 and I have spent most of it in Michigan apart from a stint in West Virginia. I grew up in the Kalamazoo suburb of Parchment. I enjoy history (especially local and Michigan), travel, music and sports among other hobbies. I am huge Western Michigan sports fan as well as the Lions, Tigers, Red Wings, and Pistons. A Xennial born in 1979, I am sandwiched right between Generation-X and Millenials, so my outlook on the world and life is odd. I'm pretty much an old soul with a youthful heart and an open mind. I've been married to lovely Lacy since 2006. We enjoy meteorology, aurora hunting, astronomy, our fish aquarium, road trips, movies, television and much more. We also enjoy the company of our cat companions Brutus, Stanley and Frankie.
