Born and raised in Chicago. I've been with the Chicago Police Department almost 25 years, the last 8 years as a homicide detective. I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, canoeing, and anything to do with the outdoors. Recently took up photography as hobby and hope some day to get some great weather shots. Adopted a German Shepherd three years ago and he goes everywhere with us, as you can see by the amount of photos he is in.
