Chicago Gateway Green: Why did you decide to get involved with Gateway Green?
JL: When I was 21 I had heard about the BEST party in Chicago called Green Tie Ball! When I attended the party I found out that not only was it the BEST party, but a A non-profit organization dedicated to greening and beautifying the BEST city in the WORLD, Chicago’s expressway, gateways, and neighborhoods. Put those two together which are two of my passions I had to get involved. Over the years I have held every position imaginable and I encourage everyone out there to get involved, it will change your life!
CGG: What is your favorite thing about Chicago?
JL: I was born, raised, grew up, and now live in Chicago. It is the BEST city in the world because we have the BEST most diverse hard working people, have the BEST art, culinary & nightlife culture, have the BEST Midwestern hospitality & have the MOST beautiful skyline, lake, parks & places to live in the WORLD!
CGG: Tell us a random fun fact about yourself.
JL: Not only do I have a Twin Brother, but I have an older brother that has the same birthday as us!
CGG: What is your favorite movie, book, or band?
JL: My favorite band is the greatest band who have ever lived, played and graced us with their amazing talent, Pearl Jam!
