Did you know there are almost five million trees in DTE Energy’s electric service territory that are within 30 feet of an electrical line? In 2016, DTE crews worked with homeowners and municipalities to trim or in some cases remove those trees in a way that preserved the health of the trees while improving reliability. …

For many DTE Energy employees, the death of Wayne State University Sgt. Collin Rose was personal. The company’s security team works closely with the WSU Police Department on a number of initiatives, including supplying bait cars to help reduce auto thefts in Detroit. “As a public servant dedicated to the safety of the public, Sgt. …

Introduction

Husband, father, blogger, student, Detroiter. All of these are accurate when used to describe me, yet these words only tell part of the story. I've been in political campaign fundraising, non-profit organization fundraising, retail grocery management and straight-commission sales.

I am currently the Director of Digital Media for the City of Detroit. Anything I say here is purely my opinion and does not reflect the official position of the City of Detroit, unless otherwise noted.
