Personal:
My wife Jen and I moved to Lake County in 2000 and Lindenhurst in 2003.  We have 2 boys that have played for LASC.  One remains with the club and the other has moved on to other sports and activities.  I grew up in DuPage County and graduated from Naperville North HS and then college from North Central College with a BS in Marketing.

Professional:
I have worked in the same industry since 2000 in sales, sales management and operations management.  My current role has me managing 12 individuals in my company‚Äôs Indianapolis location.  I really enjoy working for smaller, privately held companies that promote entrepreneurial attitudes and place importance on work life balance.

Soccer Experience:
I can honestly say this is limited to only one year while in grade school.  I played a variety of sports as a kid in leagues, but once in high school I focused on 3 in particular.  I played football, wrestled and was on the track and field team.  I finally retired from playing semi-pro football in 2014 and I am currently focused on my golf game while introducing my boys to the sport.

Coaching Experience:
I started coaching youth football in 2001 for Libertyville and then for Warren.  Once my boys got older I began to coach soccer for the Lindenhurst Park District.  I have coached for the iceless hockey league for several years and even volunteered to help out with the Lake Villa Baseball teams that my boys played on.
