Outside the Office

A self-described sports junkie, Lazaro loves football, especially the Chicago Bears. He also plays basketball and works out every morning. Though he’s a Chicagoland native and Illinois sports run through his veins, Lazaro is happy to have had the city of St. Louis and its residents welcome him with open arms and is excited to share some of his Illinois hospitality with his fellow Midwest colleagues.
