Mom always said my mouth would either keep me employed or put me in jail.

Mom always said my mouth would either keep me employed or put me in jail. Luckily, I survived college without any legal scrapes and now have a career I love.

I'm a proud Yooper, born and raised in Marquette. After graduating from Northern Michigan University, I headed west and fell in love with Montana. If not for distance from family, I may still be there. When I came back to the Midwest, I met my wife. After stops in Minnesota and Louisiana, we're now home for good in West Michigan.

The best way to report on a community is to be a part of it. There are many organizations about which I am very passionate. I can honestly say they do as much for me as I do for them… maybe more.

When I'm not at work, I'm usually golfing poorly or freezing in a hockey rink. Refereeing is my oldest hobby. I've worked collegiately. But now, I mostly make 10-year-olds cry when I give them tripping penalties.
