How I came to love The Arsenal: My Great Grandad maintained a Stewardship @ Highbury in the early ‘60s; bringing his Grandson along to bear witness from Highbury’s NorthEnd. My Father’s commitment survived his move across the pond, and my siblings and I eventually joined him in support of our club.

Favorite Arsenal Moment: Arsenal v. Barcelona | Wednesday, 17 May 2006 | Stade de France, Saint-Denis, Paris | The Gunners make their very first appearance and became the first London club to feature in a Champions League final. 76’.

Top hobbies: Talking, Stonemasonry*, and Marksmanship*.

Favorite Thing About Chicago Gooners: Supporting the greatest club of all time; Having a great local to watch matches; Doing it all from the greatest city in the lower 48.
