As a kid growing up in Chicago I loved listening to the amazing, entertaining radio personalities on Chicago radio and knew it’s what I wanted to do. Even though my parents encouraged me to have a “back up” plan just in case this radio thing didn’t work out, I am fortunate to have worked in radio since I was 18-years-old. Radio has taken me from Chicago, to Indiana, Virginia, Michigan, California and back to Indiana! And along the way I’ve been blessed to have my wife Julie and two great kids Evan and Olivia.

When I’m not on the radio, I love spending time with my family. My wife Julie does speaking in churches and retreats, my son Evan loves basketball and all sports (a love I share with him), and my daughter Olivia is an artist and crazy about animals – especially our dog Zack. We also love going to theme parks and riding roller coasters together! I have my Masters in Counseling and do so some work with a private practice, in addition to being active in my church. I’m also in a billion fantasy football leagues (if someone asks, I can’t say no – so please don’t ask me to be in one … my wife will thank you).

If you were to ask my mom one of her biggest regrets when it comes to me, she would probably bemoan the fact that she didn't push me (or teach me) to eat healthier - namely, eating my vegetables. In fairness to her, most kids go out of their way to avoid eating their veggies -...

Can you relate to this? There is a change you want to make, like you want to cut out junk food or use social media less. You are good for a day or two, but soon you are back to those things you are wanting to avoid. You are not alone. The problem is we often just think we need a...

Remember as a kid doing something wrong and your parents telling you, “Say you are sorry!” When we wrong or hurt someone it is good to say we are sorry. But we all have these people in our lives – and maybe you do it – say “I’m sorry almost as a reflex. You say it when you haven...
