I would prefer not to spew my financial information over the internet but I do plan on having more than 37K per year.. so it seems that I have to be sure I don't put myself into the higher 25 % tax bracket and I would seem that Roth would be a way of reducing my taxable income. And providing the largest after tax income.

The amount it grows by will be taxed when you take it out. It will get taxed based on what tax bracket you're in at the time. So a Roth doesn't really generate tax-free income.
Are you sure about that? What is the point of it. My regular IRA I thought would be taxed this way. The roth money I was told would not be included in my gross income.
