I am a lifelong northern Illinois resident, I grew up in Schaumburg, attended and graduated from Northern Illinois University. My outdoor hobbies include, snowmobiling, motorcycling on my Harley, side-by-side (ATVing) riding up north in Wisconsin. My Indoor hobbies include music collecting, CDs and vinyl. I have one of the most awesome collections of music on vinyl ranging from classic county, oldies, classic rock, pop, hair bands and more. I love classic TV series. Shows like ‘Lost in Space’, ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ 'Seinfeld’ ‘Family Guy’ and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ always have a spot in my DVD player. I own every season of all of them. My two favorite movies of all time are 'Office Space' and 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High.'
