Associate Director

  • Ravenswood Public Art Committee
  • Malt Row Committee
  • Ravenswood ArtWalk Planning Committee

A life-long Chicagoan, Gene has a soft spot for Ravenswood thanks in part to the fact that his parents met here while working for the Chicago and North Western Rail Road. 30-some years later, he’s thrilled to be working just down the street from their old offices.

Gene is passionate about maintaining Ravenswood’s standing as a hub for creative industry. Over 9 years with the Greater Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce and Ravenswood Community Council, he’s fallen in love with working among the artists, artisans, brewers, manufacturers and designers that call our community’s historic industrial corridor home. He strives to develop events and programming that make Ravenswood a wonderful place to live, work, shop, play and dine.

Outside of work, Gene’s interests include live music, supporting local musicians and artists, stand-up comedy, creative writing, urban exploration, skeeball, and photography. He loves the smell of bowling alleys and old books, and hates writing about himself in the third person.
