I am born. Edgewater Hospital, 1981. Now, Edgewater Hospital has been closed after a Medicare fraud scandal. Some day I will write a short story about that fact to shoehorn some kind of symbolism.
I grew up all along Devon Avenue, from the lake to the airport, and went to the University of Illinois at Chicago. Worked as a union organizer and political consultant in Chicago and in 15 different states. I attended Chicago-Kent College of Law, where I won some awards and got some papers published. I’m an attorney practicing in the areas of land use, administrative law, municipal law, appeals, and election law.
I own the best dog in the world. She is my chattel.
