I have been a resident of the Fox Valley since 1987. I’m a former trustee of the St. Charles Library District and a former director of the Kane/DuPage Soil and Water District Board. I’m a graduate of the University of Chicago (MBA) and the University of Iowa (MS in engineering, MA in political science). I have been a self-employed consulting engineer since 1991, and a CPA in Illinois since 1981. I am married with four adult children, and I’m a member of the Little Home Church (United Church of Christ) in Wayne.
