My duties include Digital Content Manager, News Reporter and Show Contributor for 95.3 WBCK. My broadcasting career began in 1999 and I have spent most of it in Michigan other than a stint in West Virginia. I was born and raised in the Kalamazoo suburb of Parchment. I married my wife Lacy in Las Vegas in 2006. We enjoy traveling, meteorology, aurora hunting, astronomy, our fish aquarium, music, movies, television and much more. We also enjoy the company of our cat companions Brutus, Stanley and Frankie. I enjoy history, (especially local and Michigan related), 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 between Generation-X and Millenials, so my outlook on the world, politics, and life is odd at the least. I'm an old soul with a youthful heart and an open mind.
