Craig was born in Chicago in 1960 to a single mother and was raised by his grandparents in Southwestern Michigan until his mother returned home when he was 9. He married Mary, an RN at Munson, in 1983 and received a Bachelors of Landscape Architecture degree in 1985. They lived in Colorado Springs until 1994 where their sons, Richard (23) and Michael (21) were born. Since both he and Mary were raised in Michigan, the opportunity to return to the "Big Lake" and a ski town was a huge attraction. They love the beauty of the woods and water, the growing entertainment options and the tremendous dining options in the Traverse area.
Craig has worked as a financial advisor for over 25 years and is currently a Portfolio Manager/First Vice President for Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. He also serves on the board of the Old Town Playhouse and believes this event will bring them additional focus and support.
