I'm in my 6th year


What's your favorite part about what you do?


I love earning peoples trust and receiving sincere thanks for my hard work


What do you love most about Chicago?


I just feel Chicago is in perfect balance. Although it is far from perfect overall, it is fun, diverse, full of culture, the right size, and full of good people.


What are your interests outside of work?


Exercise like rock climbing and yoga, live music, and eating Chicago's amazing variety of restaurants
