Additional Information


I wasn't really expecting to be running a newspaper, but the ball started rolling and I went with it. In the summer of 2020, I set out to help my friend Bob Nester "sell a few ads to get the paper going again." A couple weeks later, Bob (The Owner of The Sun Times News) asked me if I might consider being the Advertising Manager, which I accepted. A few weeks later, I was running the show and Bob declared me The Executive Director. It has been a challenge and quite a journey. We publish the paper weekly, and mail it out to every home in Dexter, Chelsea, and a large portion of Saline. Got a story idea? Send me a note!

From 2017-2020, I served as the Director of Sales for Michigan for CADE Advertising. I enjoyed working with clients, making commercials, and hosting a monthly breakfast at our Michigan Headquarters at Office Evolution. 

I have been a performer and Booking Manager for the group THREE MEN and a TENOR for 29 years (13 years full time 1995-2008). The groups Emmy Award winning PBS special has been aired nationally and internationally in millions of homes. The group sings music from as early as the Mills Brothers and the Ink Spots, Elvis and the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Bob Marley, Garth Brooks, The Zac Brown Band... All delivered in a fun and light hearted approach. The show is fun!
