I am a sixth-generation resident of Kendall County and I live in Oswego with my wife, Lisa, my two stepsons, Matthew and Chad and my daughter, Ava. I grew up in Oswego, graduated from Oswego High School and am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

For the last 23 years, I have been a successful small business owner with offices in Oswego and Chicago. I have served our communities as the chairman of the National Federation of Independent Business Fox Valley Area Action Council for small business as well as the chairman of the Board of Directors of the Kendall County Food Pantry since 2008. In addition, I am a former treasurer of the Oswego Bears Youth Football and Cheer Pop Warner program.

More recently, I served as Board Chairman for the Aurora Regional Chamber of Commerce and still serve as the NFIB Illinois Leadership Council Chairman. I am very proud to have served in both of these positions as we must work hard to improve the jobs and business climate in Illinois.

For the record, I am a pro-constitution, fiscal conservative who believes that the role of government has become too expensive and too intrusive and that our government has given our children too much debt.
