About me

I love my job and helping people but our life is more than work.  My wife and I have worked for multiple animal rescue groups and are currently the proud parents to 5 rescue dogs and 2 cats.   We love to travel and spending time with family. 


My main leisure activity is golf and my goal is to play the worlds finest golf courses.  I am also a die-hard Chicago sports fan and cannot wait to celebrate a Cubs world series year, of course.
