About Me

I am passionate about helping families solve the problems that keep them up at night.  I have a wonderful wife Katie, three adult children, three beautiful grandchildren and one more on the way.  I live in Riverwoods with Katie and our dog Buster who we rescued from the Anti Cruelty Society in 2007.


 


I love studying history and World War 2 is a huge part of my life.  I have visited Normandy France five times and took a group of seven friends as a private tour in 2012 and am planning another in October of 2014. 


 


I love pets and have helped many of my clients provide for their people and pet loved ones as well.
