Family: Wife, (Married: 2002). Son, lives in Denver. Daughter and Son in Law, live in Bloomington/Normal. Cat.
Occupation: Semi-retired. REALTOR, CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist). I founded an internet-based real estate company in 2000. There I created a novel real estate listing program which helped thousands of people save millions of dollars in commissions. I had 30+ sponsored agents and was able to mentor 2 of them to a point where they were able to buy my company. I now work for one of them but am also aligned with a real estate company in the Canary Islands (Spain). I would not call myself bilingual but I can get by and attempt to study Spanish daily. I also practice my faith daily.
Civic involvement: Volunteer leader of the Go Gurnee Walking Club (with the Gurnee Park District), Volunteer at Northern Illinois Food Bank, Volunteer at Feed My Starving Children, Volunteer at Woodland Elementary School, Member of the Gurnee Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association, Faithful attendee every Sunday at Immanuel Church in Gurnee plus we spent Christmas Day (at Immanuel) helping 53 Navy recruits from Great Lakes enjoy a Christmas while away from home.
In His Own Words:
I am extremely blessed and my life now is mostly about giving back. My desire to serve on the village board is an extension of that. I am overwhelmed at the amount of support I have received from everyone in the community. My goal is to honor that support daily.
