Anything else we should know? I was raised in the suburbs of Chicago. I spent my youth in the Boy Scouts and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. My grandfather and father were both Eagle Scouts and I am proud to carry on that tradition. After high school I joined the Army out of a sense of duty to my community and country. I have spent the last 13 years in private law enforcement and moved out here as part of a promotion. I am currently a district level security manager leading a team of investigators. I have fallen in love with Maricopa and hope to be able to serve my community as constable.
