Meet the man who just led the "Blow Up a Car" campaign.
How long have you lived in Milwaukee and why did you choose to live here?
Well, I grew up in Whitefish Bay, moved to Los Angeles, then chose to move back a few years ago. So about 24 years here.
What about Milwaukee makes it a place you want to work and play?
The people. I’ve spent time elsewhere, and the people here are simply nicer, more willing to collaborate and more passionate than anywhere I’ve seen.
What is your favorite Milwaukee event?
I realize it’s completely pandering, but the Newaukee New Year’s party, hands down. This’ll be my fourth year going and it’s only gotten bigger and more incredible every time.
What is one thing you’d like to see change about Milwaukee?
I want the people of Milwaukee to work together to make the rest of the world see what a wonderful place this is. I want them to see our talent, tools, and work ethic and regard our city as the place to bring business if you want that business to thrive.
What do you do?
I’m a partner at Flipeleven Creative, a digital marketing agency.
