About your host

I'm an avid runner who has a knack for all things history. I have lived in downtown Chicago for almost 10 years and spend much of my free time along the river and lakefront. I enjoy sharing the fascinating stories of how Chicago was established, its trials and tribulations during industrialization, and how it came to be a top tourist destination in the 21st century.
