Name: Scoop Skupian
What neighborhood he lives in: Northcenter
Where we saw him: Walking his dog near North Wolcott Avenue and West Irving Park Rd.
What issues most concern you with the neighborhood?
There?s a bank that might go in on Lincoln and Berteau, and we would love to see another bank with a bunch of parking spaces. We?ve met about that, but things being the way they are with the economy, the developer has been sitting on the piece of land forever. In the best case scenario, we could have a park. That?s the only thing I can think of off the top of my mind other than?uh, no, I?ll just go with that.
What do you really like about the neighborhood?
It?s got a good sense of community. It’s very walkable.
Do you work in the community?
I work for a company based in Cleveland, but I work out of my home office.
What do you exactly?
It?s a software company, kind of marketing.
Do you like that job?
Yeah, sure. [Laughs]. I?ll go with yes.
If you could have any job now, what would it be?
My wife owns a store up the street. I just came from there. There?s a possibility in the next year or two I?ll work there full-time as well. That would be a long-term goal, a mid-term goal. It’s called Embellish. It’s an accessories boutique.
Do you have anything else about yourself you would want people to know?
No, I don?t want people to know anything else about me. Thank you!
