I am the Executive Director of the Hegeler Carus Foundation, which manages the preservation and restoration of two historic homes in La Salle, IL.  The Hegeler Carus Mansion, built in 1874 is a National Historic Landmark, is under restoration and is operated as a house museum.  The Julius W.

I write a travel blog, The Backyard Tourist.  I blog about quick day trips for people without a lot of time for a get away. 
Prior to joining the Hegeler Carus Foundation I founded a marketing company in La Salle, IL.  My firm provided marketing solutions to small and medium sized businesses in North Central Illinois specializing in marketing, public relations, advertising, social media, branding and image consulting.  I have spoken to various organizations on customer service, image, and marketing.
