I’m originally from Glenview, Illinois a northern suburb of Chicago. After a successful career in real estate property management I recently retired to Marco Island. We chose Marco Island due to the great weather, community and the ability to have my boat in my backyard. My wife Connie is originally from Minneapolis, moved to Chicago in the 1980’s where we met and looks forward to life in Marco Island. I’ve been a sailor my entire life participating primarily in racing sailboats on the Great Lakes from 20′ to 70′. I have also competed in 41 Chicago Mackinac Races and a Transpac race in 2013. I have since I have converted to power boating with an Azimut 46 and currently own a Formula 280 and look forward to exploring the waters of southwest Florida.
