Financial Advisor in their wealth management division.
Why did you become a member of YPC?
To network outside my already established group of friends, create business and personal contacts, and I like to meet new people. I am very social.
What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Chicago business community?
The most important issue I would say is making your business or profession stand out in a massive environment like Chicago. Competition and how you differentiate yourself in business is always key but even more so in a vast community like Chicago where so many people could be doing your exact profession. The best businesses in Chicago thrive because they not only stand out but are the absolute best in their respective niches/industry.
What is your favorite song?
You Might Die Trying (preferably a live version) – Dave Mathews Band
What is your favorite activity to do in Chicago?
Trying new restaurants/bars. I have lived downtown for a while and it seems I am always hearing about some new great restaurant or local bar that I want to go explore. There never seems to be a shortage of places I have found despite living downtown for quite some time. My girlfriend is a bit of a foodie too so that helps.
