I am 35 and live in Marion, Ohio. In fact, I have never lived anywhere besides Marion, a fact that is somewhat unique and sad all at the same time.

Candice and I own Neighborhood Image. We design websites, help with online marking, and run the news site Marion Online.com. Together we have over 25 years of experience in website building and marketing. Previously, I was the morning show host for WDCM 97.5 for about five years.

Candice and I were married on September 22, 2007. Some would say we are still newly-weds, but we’ve known each other for a long time since we worked together for years.

Apparently my answer of “nothing” is inadequate when I’m asked what I want for birthdays or holidays. With the thought of being a bit more helpful, I have linked to a wish list on Amazon. Just click on the icon on the main page and you will be taken to my wonderfully short list of wishes. But really, you don’t have to get me anything. I have everything I need already.


Candice is my wife in case you didn’t catch that above. She is a maker/creator/designer. In addition to making websites, she knits, blogs, bakes, decorates, gardens, and more. She is rarely happier than when she is creating.


Mikael is my 16-year-old son. He is a quiet teenager, at least around Candice and me. Around his friends, well that is probably a different story. He’s a sophomore and is searching to find his next step in life. He enjoys playing soccer, theĀ  military, watching the History Channel, and not turning in his homework. Hey, everyone has to have hobbies.
