Chicago Gateway Green: Why did you decide to get involved with Gateway Green?
Dom Merritt: When I heard that there was an awesome organization whose mission was to keep the city I love and call home beautiful, I was hooked. I really connected with Gateway because you can see the impact everyday throughout the city. I wanted to ensure that I contributed to a force that seeks to preserve the beauty that is Chicago.
CGG: What is your favorite thing about Chicago?
DM: When I moved to Chicago about 10 years ago, I never thought I would be here this long. Between the awesome food, great people, and amazing summer festivals, Chicago is home!
CGG: Tell us a random fact about yourself.
DM: Hmm Random fact…I am petrified of spiders. Don’t know why but me and spiders do not get along.
CGG: What is your favorite movie, book, or band?
DM: My favorite movie is the original Indiana Jones. 80’s movies, while cheezy to us now were awesome back in the day. Love me some Docta Jones!
