All Good Things. . .

Hard to believe that my time in Chicago, as a resident is about to end! Fifteen years goes by fast. I've never been one for goodbye's, but have chosen to live my life as if there were no tomorrow's. To that end, this is a time of celebration for my friends and me.

My best friend Mark Grotto, and my partners at ChicagoPride.com are hosting a Bon Voyage Party for me, with the gang at Sidetrack, Saturday, December 12th at 9:00pm. Stop by and say hi!

Off to see the Wizard!

Change

It's with great joy and excitement I announce that I am moving to Seattle.

After 15 years, I have established a true home and life changing friends here in Chicago. I'd like to continue that journey in time spent with my wonderful Parents, in the city I grew up!

I am moving my consulting practice with The CompleMentor to our firm offices in Seattle. With technology being what it is, I'll continue the practice of personal growth, professional development, and life priorities nation wide.

My commitment to the LGBT Community through ChicagoPride.com and the GoPride Network will continue to flourish thanks to my blessed relationship with my business partners Steve and Matthew.

I will take the next few weeks to celebrate Chicago; go on long overdue dates, and celebrate friends.

No goodbyes.
