I was born and raised in Glen Ellyn, attended Marquette University earning degrees in Finance and Marketing (2009), and lived in Chicago from 2009 -2020. In the midst of COVID my wife and I relocated temporarily to Cleveland to be closer to her family – now that some restrictions have been eased and we can more easily travel in between cities, we have decided to plant our roots in the suburbs (we just bought a home in Wheaton).
I spent the first 11 years of my career working in recycling – a field that I grew to love and still strongly advocate for (I’ll try not to be seen digging plastic out of the garbage). Aside from my interest in trash, I love playing golf (a passion that drew me to this position), live music (my wife and I would try to make it to a few shows per month pre-COVID), and sports teams that will always make me sad (Bears, White Sox, Marquette hoops, etc.).
I am excited to continue meeting all of you and look forward to meeting your fabulous guests!
