Originally from Benton Harbor, Michigan but a resident of the Tampa Bay area since 1986, I've gone native and am now solidly behind the Lightning, Rays and Buccaneers. I'm a staff writer for Raw Charge, covering the Tampa Bay Lightning. In addition, I run off at the keyboard on my own web site (link below). I've also helped produce a documentary film ("Ten at the Top in Tampa Bay"...look it up on IMDB.com!) and am an ordained minister who will gladly commit your next wedding for the low, low price of admission to the reception and a seat next to one of the cuter bridesmaids.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Tampa Bay Rays
  • NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • NHL Tampa Bay Lightning
