Hello. Thanks for viewing my biography page and getting to know me.
I'm a self- taught real estate Broker, consultant and real estate developer who has held a State of Illinois real estate license since 1993 and a Broker’s license since 1998. Most recently, I passed the managing broker test in April 2011.
I started as a private in the Illinois National Guard as an Infantryman in 1978. I was commissioned a second Lieutenant and am currently a retired Army Major. I left the Army in 1993 as an active duty Army Captain and began to teach ROTC at Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC). As a 28-year old Active Duty Army Captain, I helped start up and train the last PATRIOT Battalion in the U.S. Army at Ft. Bliss, TX and then moved to Bitburg, Germany, where I was responsible for 95 soldiers, 65 million dollars of equipment with a 10 million dollar budget. I held command of A Battery, 5/7 Air Defense Artillery PATRIOT at Ft. Bliss TX and Bitburg, Germany for twenty-six months. I served two tours of duty in Germany, one tour of duty at Ft. Bliss, Texas and one tour of duty in Saudi Arabia before coming to Southern Illinois. I hold a BS (1983) in Agribusiness from Illinois State University, Normal, IL and have taken master degree course work at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I also hold or have held many different real estate licenses and certificates.
