After doing my 30 to life in the auto industry, I am lucky to now pursue my passions of cycling and music. I love mountain biking and “getting lost” on Michigan’s back roads. I just work part time now, and I’m so glad that when I do go to work, I get to go to my Happy Place with the Hometown family. Then when the weekend rolls around (that’s Wed for me…hey somebody’s gotta do 4 day weekends and it might as well be me :D) I get to play with a bunch of different talented local musicians, playing blues, rock and old school R&B. I usually have a musical project or 2 going on. Oh yeah, and to any home brewers, I’m a beer tester… will work for beer!
