Rogers Park can be defined by it’s character. It is what we know and love about Rogers Park. It is the personality and spirit of where we live. Examples could be the residents, the beaches or even the cobblestone street on Glenwood Avenue.
I am a long-time resident and member of many community organizations in Rogers Park. I have dedicated ten years to improving our neighborhood in any way that I can.

Even though there is much room for improvement in Rogers Park and the 49th Ward of Chicago, I have never regretted my decision to live here. I am a registered voter who, in the best interest of our community will not be voting for the incumbent Alderman in upcoming elections.

My photography and videography of Rogers Park began in late 2006 when my two-year theater renovation project came to an abrupt end with the demolition of the Adelphi Theater.
In 2007, I created the blog, Rogers Park in 1,000 Words to address issues in our community regarding crime, blight, waste, and political corruption in Rogers Park and the 49th Ward.
I enjoy hosting weekly events in Rogers Park including barbeques, bonfires, coffee conversation meetups, movie nights, wine tastings and more.
