As a Rockford native I attended Rockford East High School and Rock Valley College. I am passionate about arts, such as painting, writing, and music. I also enjoy hiking, canoeing, and most other outdoor pastimes. I always love a new challenge. No matter how hard they may have been, overcoming obstacles has become one of the most rewarding parts of my life; I have every intention of continuing to accomplish my goals in the future.

Although I grew up in Rockford, I have lived all over the world, thanks mostly to the Marine Corps. I am a graduate of Boylan and recently married to my best friend. My 10+ years of legal experience include court reporting, legal review, legal assistance, and now workers' compensation. My hobbies include woodworking and watching movies; but my family, my dog Rigg-Lee, and my guitars are my passion.
