Firefighter / EMT at Engine 119
A Little Q&A with the Hero
What's your favorite part of the job?
Being able to help people every day.
Your favorite place for pizza in Chicago?
Pequod's. If you haven't tried it, you need to.
What's your favorite drink?
Ketchup on a hot dog?
Absolutely no mustard.
Cubs or Sox?
White Sox, but I'll root for the Cubs unless it's the Crosstown Classic.
Cats or dogs?
Do you have a favorite vacation spot?
ANYWHERE WITH A BEACH AND AN OCEAN!
If you weren't a firefighter/paramedic, what would you be doing?
I'd still be serving Chicago as a police officer.
Do you have tattoos-if yes, how many?
Yup. Plenty (see calendar photos),
Any words of wisdom?
Challenge yourself. Very little growth happens if you stay in your comfort zone.
I'm also a full time Dad, a lifetime Mensa member (nerd), a former professional basketball player, I served the city of Chicago as a police officer and swat operator, and can solve Rubik's cubes in under a minute thirty (for the 3x3) under six minutes (for the 5x5), and under an hour (for the 9x9).
