How long have you lived in Milwaukee and why did you choose to live here?
I have lived in Milwaukee on and off for 15 years. I love Milwaukee. I’ve lived other places throughout the country and world, but no place has ever felt like home the way Milwaukee does.

What about Milwaukee makes it a place you like to work and play?
There is always something to do here.  You pretty much have to try to be bored.  If there is not a festival going on, there are great restaurants, concerts, or you can go for a nice walk along the lake.

What is your favorite Milwaukee event?
Indian Summer – it gets me every time.

What is one thing you’d like to see Milwaukee do better?
There are some great creative and innovative forces at work in this city.  I would like to see more business and the public support these efforts more.

What do you do?

    I'm Milwaukee's bike share program! I have a network of bicycles that can be rented for short quick trips. Essentially, I connect people to places in Milwaukee.
