I am the Digital Content Manager for 95.3 WBCK and also am a news reporter and a contributor to the morning show. My broadcasting career began in 1999 and I have spent most of it in Michigan other than a year away 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, music, movies, television and much more. We also enjoy the company of our cat companions Brutus, Stanley and Frankie as well as the serenity of our fish aquarium. 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. I am a proud Xennial born in 1979 and sandwiched between Generation-X and Millenials. My outlook on the world is unique at the least. I'm an old soul with a youthful heart and an open mind.
