Born January 30, 1950 in Berwyn, IL, younger brother to my sister, Marie. Raised in Stickney, IL, and attended Home Grammar School, graduated 1964. Played Little League baseball, delivered newspapers mornings and evenings. Attended Morton West High School and studied architectural drawing, worked part time at Colonel Sanders KFC and E.J. Korvetts, graduated 1968. Studied Design at Southern Illinois University, graduated 1972 with a BA Degree. During the summers and holidays I worked as a brick layer laborer which helped both monetarily and physically.

After college I had a few jobs: cost estimator in the sign industry, insurance adjuster, part time photographer, small business owner and for twenty five years a career as an industrial salesman. And let us not forget being the 3rd Ward Alderman since 1993. (Thank you for your support!) In my spare time I have conducted a cooking class in January 2001 and 2002 at our new Community Activity Center.

I met my wonderful wife, Claudia, in 1975 and we were married in 1977. We have 2 great children, Scott and Bridgette. Claudia and I have lived in Palos Hills for since 1989 and in Hickory Hills for 11 years prior to moving to Palos. I coached Little League baseball for Scott and soccer for Bridgette.

During the 1980’s I participated in Mike Ryko’s RIB FEST, both as a contestant and judge, I never won but we had a great time every year. For years I played racquetball at 6:00 AM & volleyball with Claudia in a mixed league in the evenings. I have enjoyed fishing at local spots as well as in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Lake Erie. Golf, a sport I played from time to time, was re-introduced to me in 1990 and yes, I love golf. I always find time for golf.
