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 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 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:   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 aside from :) 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).

This is one of my favorite places to shop any time of year, but especially for hard to buy for people at Christmas time. Just take a look at some the awesome (and HILARIOUS) stuff I found on a recent trip to Mass Ave's Silver In The City ...

A top Hollywood trainer says the fact that it's just 1 of about 1.095 meals you're going to eat this year... is just 1 of the 4 reasons to eat whatever you want for Thanksgiving. Click here for the other 3.
Big Lug Canteen is now open right off the Monon in Nora (in the old Snooty Fox). After hearing Terry Kirts, my Foodie on Duty from Indy Monthly talk about this place and their " Nashville Hot Chicken " -- I had to go! If you're not familiar with Nashville Hot Chicken.. it's HOT...
The entertainment center has been dubbed "The Divorce Maker" because of the 32 page instruction booklet and 169 screws. It looks so frustrating... I'm not even married, but I want to get married just so I can divorce someone over this thing :) Click here to see it.
...or more specifically it's coming to Fishers (or Fisheriffic as I like to call it) . There's a friendly "competition" between Fishers & Carmel.. you know it's true. This has to be a BIG feather in Fishers' cap! I actually think this could be a "drop mic" moment for Fishers...
