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 Prairie in the summertime!

FAVORITE CONCERT I’VE EVER ATTENDED:   Garth Brooks, The Eagles, or Fleetwood Mac. Tough to decide between those 3.  

MOVIES:   Groundhog Day is my favorite movie of all time. I also never met a documentary I didn’t like. I recently 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:   Curb Your Enthusiasm is the funniest show that’s ever been on television. There you have it.  The matter is settled.  Other than that... any "whodunnit" murder show (Dateline, 48 Hours, etc), and PBS Frontline (see previous note about my love of documentaries).

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:  Vida, 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:   I don't usually eat breakfast (don't judge me).

FAVORITE ROADTRIP FROM INDY:   Chicago. A show at 2nd City + dinner at a fun trendy spot = a great weekend! Or back home to the St. Louis area. I crave St. Louis style pizza and have to go get a fix every now and then. If you've never had STL pizza, let me show you the way :)

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 wtih stevia, La Croix, water with organic lemon juice  (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... oh wait, I have AAA. Nevermind. Carry on.).

Ok, actually Indy's coolest basement is in Westfield. I'm wondering how long I could hide out/pretend to live in this house before anyone would notice??? Video of Touring Million Dollar Homes at Home-a-rama - SITC Click here for Home-a-Rama tickets.

Heather Tallman (our resident busy mom who likes to cook from Basilmomma.com ) joins me each week to chat about life, food, trends, must make recipes, etc. This week we talked about this -> Weird Cake From The 70s Making a Comeback . I had never heard of this cake. Heather...
As I gear up to particpiate in the 10th annual Monumental (Half) Marathon on November, 4th... I wanted to share the best piece of running advice I ever received. A running coach at the YMCA said slow down.
I absolutley loved my time at Main Event on 82nd St. The games, the bowling alley (which may be the best in town), and the food... the food was way better than I anticipated. Book your next birthday party, company outing, or heck... just go in for lunch. Watch for more,...

The brothers served as my guest co-hosts this morning and I asked them what we spend too much money on... and what we don't spend enough on with home improvement. If you're a homeowner, you have to hear their answer... Photo Credit: Rommel Demano / Contributor / Getty Images
Today we hug a little tighter, perhaps feel a little more grateful, and life might seem a little more precious. This piece of audio takes me back to that morning... Photo Credit: nito100 / iStock / Thinkstock
Couldn't help but think of 867-5309, but this song seeks to make a phone number famous for a very different reason. You see 1-800-273-8255 is the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline . If you're a casual listener you may not know that my uncle (who was really like...
