HOMETOWN:   Wolf Lake, IL (Population 300..counting dogs & cats)

CAREER HISTORY:   When I was in high school, my friend’s dad owned a radio station..I begged him for a job and thinking it would be awkward to reject his son’s friend, he hired me.  Since then I’ve worked in Dayton, Tulsa, St.Louis, Sacramento, Kansas City, and now Indianapolis.

FAVORITE LIVE MUSIC VENUE:   Any small intimate venue where I can sit and be sung to..like a coffee shop.  Here in town I love the Circle Theatre and Symphony on the Prarie in the summertime!

FAVORITE CONCERT I’VE EVER BEEN TO:   Garth Brooks.  Even if you’re not a country music fan..the dude knows how to put on a show!

MOVIES:   Groundhog Day is my favorite movie of all time. I also never met a documentary I didn’t like. I recenlty got a great one from the library about asparagus farming. If you check it out (you know you want to), let me know what you think!

TELEVISION:   Seinfeld is the best show that’s ever been on television. There you have it.  The matter is settled.  Other than that.. Modern Family, The Middle, Parks & Recreation, Breaking Bad, and PBS Frontline (see previous note about my love of documentaries).

WEBSITES TO VISIT:   You mean asside from b1057.com? :) I’m semi addicted to Facebook and Twitter. The things people put out there for public consumption greatly amuses me.

LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:  I was named after John Lennon’s son Sean..and I once ran for political office (and lost).

FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANTS:  Bluebeard, Yats, Iozzos, Napolese.. I could go on. Seriously. That’s like asking a mother to name her favorite child :)

FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORK:  Getting up in the middle of the night.. oh wait, I thought you said “least” favorite thing.

TYPICAL BREAKFAST:   Old man Fiber cereal and coffee w/ lots of cream and fake sugar!

FAVORITE ROADTRIP FROM INDY:   Chicago. A show at 2nd City + a Portillo’s hot dog + Giordano’s pizza = a great weekend!

LIKE TO COOK?  Yeah..I’m trying to master the art of BBQ on my smoker (low and slow baby..low and slow).

PETS: A golden doodle rescue named Brady.

THREE OF MY EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS:  Coffee, Iced tea, Diet Mt. Dew (I’m very beverage centric).

THREE THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE:  1) Go the airport with no destination in mind and just buy a ticket to a random place on the spot. 2) See the Pacers win an NBA championship. 3) Learn how to change a tire (I seriously don’t know how, so if you see me on the side of 465..please stop and help).

70% of men and 81% of women say they have at least one food they HATE! How about you? For me it's goat cheese. Bleh! It tastes dirty! I can taste even a tiny bit of it from a mile a way ;) According to a recent poll, these are the top 8 foods we admit to hating Anchovies Olives...
If you've never gone through the Starbucks drive-thru with your dog, you're really missing out. Do it. And ask for a "pup cup." It's just a cup of whipped cream. I got one for Brady the Goldendoodle the other day... he proceeded to get whipped cream all over the car. I reached...
Science: Why You Should Drink Hot Beverages On Hot Days Sean: Ooo uh uh! Bottom line: a hot drink makes you sweat more...and sweating is how your body cools itself. If I'm already sweaty, most of that additional sweat generated by my hot coffee isn't going to evaporate or cool...
I'm skeptical. I haven't tried this. Nothing tastes like Starbucks' PSL in my opinion. Nothing. I know most other coffee chains have their own versions...but most are downright nasty to me. It's the spice. You gotta go heavy on the pumpkin, light on the spice. Anyhow -- this...
The affected products were sold under the brand names Arrowhead Mills Peanut Butters, MaraNatha Almond Butters and Peanut Butters, and store brands for Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Kroger. Uh oh! I've got some Maranatha almond butter at my place :( See the full story from RTV...
Always looking for ways to stretch your dollar. Here's a good one... Stock up on K-Cups now! They're already pretty darn expensive if you ask me, but Keurig Green Mountain says they'll raise prices on K-Cups by as much as 9%..starting November 3rd. Coffee bean prices are soaring...
No way I'm doing this. I have to have essentially everything except my face under the covers (or else monsters might get me). In all seriousness...could you imagine sleeping with 1 (or even both) foot outside the covers? Sleep researchers say doing that may help you sleep better...
Was just reading about this study that came up with a "Happiness Equation." Bottom line: happiness is all about managing your expectations. The "equation" shows that people are happiest when things go better than expected ... Looking forward to happy hour with friends, finding a...
