I was born and raised on the southwest side of Chicago just a mere 1/2 mile from Midway airport. Through high school and college I attended schools near downtown Chicago (aka The Loop). Spent some time in the western suburbs when I worked as an engineer. I have also travelled extensively through the midwest as well as the entire country. I guess what I am trying to say here is that I know my way around the Chicagoland area very well and am not afraid of a little travel to more distant locales. If you think that there is anything I can help you with, a bit of travel shouldn’t stop you from contacting me as I am sure we can make something work.
