About Me

I grew up Pontiac and came to Kalamazoo to attend WMU, graduating five years later with an MBA.

I decided to stay in the area and  spent the majority of my career in the printing business, including 23 years at the Kalamazoo Gazette.

After leaving the Gazette, I considered many options, but starting my own publication afforded me the best opportunity to do many of things I have always wanted to do.

I have always appreciated what Southwest Michigan has to offer and Spark has given me the opportunity to showcase this great area.

I hope you enjoy it..
