I never expected to see Frabby in that room!
My sister decided to give The Kid a four-foot tall stuffed frog for Christmas last year. Christened Frabby, this frog was an immediate hit. The Kid and Frabby were inseparable for weeks. Frabby rode along a few times on the trip to take The Kid to pre-schoo...

Yet another blog of parenting advice
A friend whose wife is expecting their first child was asking me for advice today. He's going to be a new dad, so he was asking in general terms because until you're in it, you really don't know what to ask for. My knee-jerk reaction was to tell him to get ...

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. 

Bragging rights
I write a lot. I talk a lot.
