Much More Than My Work

I volunteer for the Chicago Legal Clinic’s mortgage foreclosure mediation program. In that capacity, I help Cook County residents navigate the foreclosure process, including filing appearances, answers, fee waivers, and other requests.

When I am not running around with my three young children and wife, Jessie, you can generally find me working with my hands. From cooking to woodworking, I like to tackle a new cooking technique or try to not lose my hands while building furniture.
