About Emil


Thanks for taking an interest. Feel free to say Hi.

Quick intro…

Curious tinkerer. Grinder. Lover. Fighter. Endearingly rough around the edges. Scrappy.

I can’t get enough of those I love the deepest (you know who you are). I have to believe the pooches somehow know, too. I think our relationships give us the greatest meaning and purpose in life.

I dig playing and watching hockey, playing only my favorite guitar riffs and licks (never having played a full song in 20+ years), listening to fine music, taking snapshots and living in the moment.

For work and some play, I’ve been weaving my way thru a digital haze since 2006 when I teamed up my with long time friend and confidant to try our hand at nourishing a quaint little web community of local, indie businesses (now defunct).

These days I’m a front end web developer + custom WordPress theme developer + quasi project manager (and jack of most digital-like things) at ODEA.

I currently take up residence in Tinley Park (the town formerly known as BusinessWeek’s Best Place to Raise a Family in America), within walking distance of First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre (aka Tweeter Center, New World Music Theater), which is also just a hop, skip and a jump into The City.

I originally hail from Bridgeview, known for being the home of Toyota Park and Chicago’s Major League Soccer team – the Chicago Fire.

I’m proud to have been born & raised [and currently still reside] in Chicago’s Southwest suburbs. I know what it means to work hard. I toil for the kind people who pay me.

* Side Note: Unfortunately, I am not accepting any modeling engagements for the next 6 months…My sincerest apologies.
