I joined the Roberts Park Fire Protection District in 1974 as a Paid on Call Firefighter. I retired as Paid on Call Assistant Chief in 2009. I am still affiliated with Roberts Park F.P.D. as Fire Marshal. Prior to joining the fire service, my fulltime career was with Peoples Gas Company. I retired from Peoples Gas after thirty three years in 2001. During my career with Peoples Gas, I was a member of the U.S. Navy Reserve. I was stationed for 15 months in the Philippines with 100 days at Phu Bai Viet Nam.
I joined MABAS in January 2010 as the Credentialing Coordinator for MABAS Illinois.
I like to play golf and travel.
