Introduction
Hi, I'm Mike, a lifelong Chicago area resident, who lives the Southwest suburbs with my wife, Jen, my black lab, Vader, and snowshoe cat, Mickey.

I've been a professional journalist for nearly 20 years with most of those years coming in the sports department of the Chicago Tribune. Right now, I'm tackling and pursuing freelance work.

I love spending time with my wife, traveling, photography, Chicago sports, WWE/pro wrestling, comedy, movies, TV (including Walking Dead), reading and consuming social media.

My alma maters, include UIC (1997), St. Laurence High School (1993) and Michael M. Byrne elementary (1989). 


Bragging rights
I've met over 30 pro wrestlers, sports stars and other celebrities.
