I am thrilled to be on 100.5 The River weekdays from 10am – 3pm! I have lived in West Michigan my entire life and enjoy the seasons it brings, although winter always seems to wear out its welcome. I have been married for over 15 years. My wife and I have three children: a 10-year-old girl, an 9-year-old boy and a 7-year-old boy. The kids are very active with sports, concerts and everything else. I spend a lot of time driving them around when I'm not replacing batteries in their toys. I look forward to ArtPrize each year and I love exploring West Michigan's trails on my bicycle. You'll also find me rooting for my alma mater GVSU, plus Michigan, the Lions and the Tigers. Thanks for listening!
