I hail from the wilderness that is the Chicagoland Suburbs; Elgin to be exact. Perfectly bred for the Stateline area though as both my parents were born in Northern Wisconsin so I can be a little bit city and a little bit chessehead…all Blackhawks though…LET’S GO HAWKS!!!

And now Hogs! I dig the simple things…bonfires and a starry night. Although you can drag me to a bar to watch the game anytime. I like my beer cold and my brats Johnsonville.

Also I have a terrible secret…I’m a huge nerd for all things Harry Potter and parlayed that into being an amateur magician. Yeah…I do card tricks.
