I am the “New Media Specialist” for the Michigan State Senate’s Senate Majority Communications office under Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville. Loosely translated, it means I am the web geek. Prior to this I was the New Media Campaign Director for the DeVos for Governor campaign, and New Media/IT Director for the the Michigan Republicans. Prior to my joining the staff of the GOP I worked as “Director of Computer Information Systems” for Michigan’s former Senate Majority Leader, Dan DeGrow, a Republican from Port Huron, Michigan.
I am also the founder of Inspiration Webworks, a full-featured, low cost web site design and hosting, e-mail hosting, graphic design services for print, outdoor, and online advertising, and custom computer support. We cater to Republican political campaigns and small businesses in Michigan. Click here for a current portfolio.
My hobbies are genealogy, music, shortwave radio, the appreciation of rum, cruising the Caribbean, collecting coins from Great Britain and stamps from Barbados, N-scale model trains, and raising freshwater tropical fish.

“Far better is it to dare mighty things, win glorious triumphs, even checkered by failures, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight which knows not victory or defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt
