Jeff Wattrick worked as a reporter/producer at WDET before escaping journalism to try his hand at non-profit endeavors and advertising. However, he couldn’t resist the siren song of metro Detroit’s foibles and excesses. He is the founder of the Dyspathy blog and later worked as a reporter/blogger for MLive Detroit. In his brief but celebrated career, he’s covered or opined on everything from Gary Brown’s whistleblower lawsuit and Super Bowl XL to Ambassador Bridge Gateway fight and social norms at the Mackinac Policy Conference.

"Everything that is wrong-headed, cynical & vicious in me today traces straight back to that evil hour in September of ’69 when I decided to get heavily involved in the political process…" - Hunter S. Thompson
