I've lived in Michigan my entire life and am proud if it! I've been involved in broadcasting since 1996 (covering Lansing Community College basketball). After graduating from Specs Howard Broadcasting School in 1998, I returned to Lansing to join Liggett Broadcasting (now TownsquareMedia). In October of 2000, I moved on to Port Huron, MI and spent seven months there, what an experience that was! In March of 2002, I returned to Lansing to continue my broadcasting career and have been here ever since. I am the very proud uncle of three wonderful kids: Jack, Anna, and Emma. They are an absolute riot, and wish I could see them more. Number 1 on my sports bucket list is to attend a Super Bowl in person. And there are four golf courses in the world that I would love to play on: Augusta National, St. Andrew's, Carnoustie, and Pebble Beach. And one of these days, I'll jump in my car and drive all across America to see some places I haven't seen yet (I've been in 25 states so far).
