Born in South Bend, Indiana, and educated at Butler University (BS) and DePaul University (MA), I have lived and worked in Indianapolis, San Diego, and Chicago.

When I’ve got free time, I enjoy traveling, cycling, snowboarding, and watching college basketball, especially my beloved Butler Bulldogs. I’m an occasional home brewer and craft beer lover. I hang around the kitchen a little bit too – I’ve been vegetarian for 15+ years and enjoy cooking.

I live in suburban Chicago with my wife Laura and my son Noah.
