Where will listening to girl music take us? To more women's basketball games for starters
Add caption A few weeks ago, The Kid implored me to listen to girl music. "What's girl music?" I asked. "It's music that has girls singing, Papa," she stated with a hint of disbelief that I didn't intuitively know that. So we started scanning FM stations, e...

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.
