I am a proud father of 2, husband to a wonderful wife, and a generally "take things as they come" kind of person. My previous job was as an award-winning journalist and newspaper editor/reporter, where I ran a weekly paper covering a small - but growing - community. I currently work in Higher Education Administration, handling "behind-the-scenes" responsibilities for an education program, as well as handling Facility access and occupancy needs for the school in which it is located. My posts are likely to come inconsistently, due mainly to the fact that working in the news industry essentially destroyed my love for writing. When I'm not at work, I'm usually at home with my family, or out and about with my family. I enjoy fine watches, craft beer, and long walks on the beach (which don't occur often, thanks to living in the Midwest). At 32 years of age, I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

In the Sept. 9 edition of the Mahomet Citizen, the editorial regarding annexation incorrectly indicated that residents not living within the village limits did not contribute to the schools that their children attend. This information was incorrect in that village residents and non-village residents alike pay school district taxes on their properties, especially if a student is attending a school within the district. The statement indicating the contrary was made in error and the Citizen regrets this error.
