I am a Chicago native.  I lived with my parents until I got married at 23 years old.  My spouse is Patricia.  I have 2 daughters that I am very proud of.  I have only moved 4 times in my life all within the Chicago suburbs.  I was a high school social studies teacher and coach.  After taking an early retirement from teaching, I started my second career as a tour director and local guide.  I really enjoy leading student and adult tour groups on all types of tours.
