About Me

Thank you for visiting my page.  This section will give you better insight as to who I am outside of "the suit".  I was born in Bonheiden, Belgium and lived a significant part of my childhood in Italy and Northern France (father played professional basketball overseas) and Los Angeles, Ca. I moved to Chicago when I was 12 and immediately became a part of both the Chatham and Hyde Park communities.  I am a graduate of Kenwood Academy (1998) and DePaul University (2002-B.A. International Studies).  


Since I was a teen, my grandmother would tell me that I am going to be the first lawyer in the family.  I couldn't let her down.  All my life I wanted to be a businessman-from the days of me offering services in Italian lessons at age 9. It was only right that I'd become a lawyer with my own business.


I am a Bulls fan first, then a Lakers fan second (I used to live in LA so I have a good excuse).  I'm also a rare fan of both the Cubs and Sox.  


My favorite moments in life are traveling, spending time with family and seeing the smile on my daughter's face .
