Michael Rose

Michael, please. Not Mike.

I was born and raised in Chicago. Even though I have not lived in the “Big City” since 1992, I still consider myself a Chicagoan (Go Bears!).

Other than listening to music, I love to cook. Most weekends you can find me in my kitchen creating something. Nothing fancy, just something out of the ordinary. If you check out my blogs I will occasionally post a recipe I have created. Of course, I had to wire speakers in to my kitchen so I can have music playing while I create. Preferably some Jazz selections – Stanley Turrentine, Charlie Haden, Vince Guaraldi, and the like.

When I am not cooking, you can either find me curled up on the couch watching a movie (Blues Brothers, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Goodfellas, Casino), or in my car just driving around.

Schedule

M-F 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Rose’s Random Video – Rand McNally

It is against the law to drive in the State of Illinois while using your phone without a hands-free device. But what about when you use the phone as your GPS? Michael has a great solution:
