Occupation...Law Enforcement

Education...BA degree.

I’ve lived in Wheeling...since 1981.

Hobbies and Interest... Reading, spending time with family 

I ran for public office to...Make a difference in our community.

For me the most important thing about being an elected official is...To represent the entire community and to make decisions that will ensure a bright future for generations to come.

I belong to...The Fraternal Order of Police, Wheeling High School Spur Club, plus various other organizations.

In the next ten years, I see Wheeling changing in the following ways... I see Wheeling becoming a 'premiere community' that will be seen as the 'gem stone' of the northwest suburbs.  We will continue to be a 'Community of Choice' and a great place to live, work and play.

Person who has influenced me the most throughout my life... My wife Cathy and my parents.

My favorite quotation is...The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible. — from Richard Devos
