Illinois Center for Aston-Patterning
Primary Office in Urbana, IL:

My main office is located in Urbana’s Independent Media Center building, next to Lincoln Square, at:

202 South Broadway, Suite 203,  Urbana, IL 61801

Getting There:

Enter the building to the left of the Post Office counter, and take the stairs at the left (the glass door located behind the lobby desk). When you enter the second floor, my office is directly to your left.

  • A busy MTD bus stop is across the street, which services the Green, Gold, Silver and Orange lines. The Orange and Green lines also service the Illinois Terminal (Amtrak and regional bus service)
  • Parking is available either in the parking garage on Broadway (25 cents an hour for the first two hours, 50 cents an hour any time thereafter), or directly behind the building in the Urbana city lot (free, 2 hours maximum).


Satellite Office in Chicago, The Aston Studio for Performing Artists:

My Chicago office is located in the historic Fine Arts Building, along the Chicago Cultural Mile, at:

410 South Michigan Avenue, Suite 927, Chicago, IL 60605

Getting There:

Once you are in the building, proceed to the elevators, where the elevator attendant will take you to the 9th floor. I share space with the Ossia Musical Forum in Suite 927.

  • The Fine Arts Building is accessible by the Library (Brown, Pink, Orange) and Jackson (Blue, Red) Metro stops.
  • There is plenty of parking nearby, though it can be expensive. It is worth checking out for discounted parking.
