Jeff has always had a passion for the performing arts, both as a viewer and participant, and has enjoyed many Chicago area performances throughout the years. While he had been aware of Strawdog for some time, he saw his first show, Cymbeline, in January 2017, and was immediately impressed. It was at this performance where he learned of the chance to join the Board, and he was invited to join the Board in June 2017. He is thrilled to have the opportunity to help Strawdog continue to grow and flourish and looks forward to a long association. Jeff lives with his wife and two daughters in the western suburbs.
