I have been on the airwaves here in West Michigan for over 25 years! From Morning Radio to Newstalk. Having grown up in Grand Rapids, it's nice to be able to have such a long broadcasting career in my own hometown. I love Michigan and feel honored to still be in the area doing what I love doing. Along with being on the radio, I sell real estate full time. A few years ago I started a web design company. I live in Cedar Springs with my dogs Scooby and Moose. In the little free time that I get, I like to camp, hike, travel, taste new craft beers and hang with friends and family.
