I am happy to be back home in Illinois where I grew up. Coming back home with me are my two dogs, Theo & Sloan. I’m a big Chicago sports fan and you can probably find me at the local record shops trying to find that diamond in the rough or at a cigar bar rooting on my favorite team. If there’s food involved, there’s a good chance I’ll show up! One of the many reasons I’m excited to be back home: I can eat Portillo’s and Lou’s more than any human should. Always looking for those local hole in the walls that have some delicious food as well. And if funny looking dude asks to pet your dog in public, just know I mean it no harm.
