After 39 spins around the sun, I have seen a lot of strange things. Born on the northwest side of Chicago, I have primarily called the western suburbs home. During that time, a few things remain consistent. I am a baseball enthusiast and a fan of George Lucas films. Specifically speaking, I am a Chicago Cubs fan and a Star Wars fan. Despite loving them, they both have broken my heart. The Cubs repeatedly during the regular season, and occasionally during the playoffs. And the Star Wars prequels fell a bit short of my expectations. Nevertheless, I have decided to stick with them. After all, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is the greatest film of all time.

Professionally, I work in marketing communications. What does that mean? I do a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. Since the mid-1990s, I have marketed recreational programs and facilities to suburbanites, and I have pitched engineering and environmental services to municipalities and institutions around the State of Illinois. At the turn of the 21st Century, I even taught communication courses at my alma mater.

I have attended at least one baseball game in every Major League city in the United States and Canada. That means I have seen all 30 teams play in all 28 cities at 36 different parks. A journey that began at Wrigley Field in the late-1970s ended at Citizens Bank Park in early 2010. I missed Olympic Stadium in Montreal, home of the Expos before they moved to Washington, D.C. Since the Washington Nationals demolished their old home, I will need to visit their new park, too. In the coming years, the Florida Marlins, soon to be renamed Miami Marlins, and Tampa Bay Rays will also construct new parks.

Ever need to find me? Odds are that I will be playing or watching baseball, out on the golf course, shuffling my Netflix queue, reading a book, searching for geocaches, or sitting in front of my iMac.

Since 2003, I have been happily married to a Milwaukee Brewers fan.
