Personal Highlights

When I am not at work, I am usually having a relaxing evening at home or trying a new restaurant in town. My favorite thing to do is attend Chicago Cubs games, especially in the summer. I love to travel whether for leisure or sport. Scuba Diving has become a favorite of mine, but really, I’ll take any reason to visit the beach.

Personal Highlights

When I’m not at work I’m a bit of a bookworm. I’ll read almost anything I can get my hands on but I love the classics like Jane Austin, the Bronte sister, Charles Dickens, etc. Yeah geek, but they amuse me. I also enjoying hanging out with the fur babies or with my boyfriend. I like doing crafts from time to time & refinishing wooden furniture pieces.

Personal Highlights

During my off time, I’m an avid concert-goer, and will go to pretty much any concert if it’s available. Within the last year, I’ve seen numerous acts ranging from Iron Maiden to Hall& Oates. I come from a theatre family, so I enjoy seeing my family members perform in various productions. I also greatly enjoy watching stand-up comedy.

Personal Highlights

My girlfriend Danielle and I love to spend time in our newly purchased home, hanging out with friends and playing with our cat. I also enjoy listening to and playing music whenever I get the chance, and I will of course always appreciate a good movie or a good video game time and again. After battling heart problems and having successful Aortic Heart Valve Replacement surgery recently, it is extremely rewarding to have a great family and to have a role on our Executive Team.
