Chicago to me is a big city in a small town. Always something new to explore but homey enough to run into friendly faces, good food and endless entertainment.

Lake Shore East is one of my favorite neighborhoods, and Lake Shore East Park is one of the city's hidden gems! And, you're close to summertime concerts at Millennium Park. What more could you want?

Being raised in rural Upper Michigan, Chicago was a natural fit for a young college grad looking for an opportunity to shine. Whatever brings you to Chicago, the spectacular lifestyle and midwestern charm will stick with you forever.

Chicago is so surreal. So much that can happen in the blink of an eye and so much to love. This place is special, from the people, the places and the things involved. There is something to do for all walks of life. To me, this city is second to none.
