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 have struggled over the years to stay in Milwaukee. With the line of work I am in (youth and community work, running a nonprofit) there are many times I feel hopeless and overwhelmed with the issues we face; unemployment, lack of opportunities for youth, #1 segregated/institutionalized racism, and wanting to explore other opportunities but at the end of the day, this is my home and Milwaukee needs invested individuals to stay here to work through the issues we face.

    Kickstart my heart to Harley Davidson Fest... Seeing all of Milwaukee turn into a sea of leather fringe and bedazzled back pocket jeans warms any fashion girl’s heart.

    "The best bonus of Harley Fest is being sung to sleep by thousands of motorcycles revving their engines throughout the streets of good ol’ Miltown."

    Without a doubt, some big investors are betting on Milwaukee's future, and as a resident of this city, I naturally think they're very wise to do so and would encourage more to follow suit. This sort of growth can have very positive effects on our community, so long as we’re planning in a way that enhances the city as a whole.

    I have lived in Milwaukee for nearly a decade. Since the first time I visited the city with my parents for a Brewers game at County Stadium, I felt a connection to the urban setting. I always felt at some point Milwaukee would be my home.

    "Milwaukee is truly a city on the rise..."
