    Matt Mosconi

    Born and raised in Libertyville, IL, I didn't spend enough time in Chicago as a kid. After moving back here from Cincinnati in 2011, I'm doing my best to make up for that lost time now. I'm constantly curious and love to chat and learn. Variety is the spice of life. Give me a comment, question, or criticism and I'll do my best to help turn it into some thought-provoking conversation.
