How long have you lived in Milwaukee and what brought you here?
Born and raised.

Was there a point where you decided this was the city you wanted to live in?
Milwaukee is Algonquin for “the good land”. So yeah, I have always wanted to live here.

What makes Milwaukee a good place to live?
Its cliché, but it’s the lakefront, the festivals, the awesome beer and the people. Milwaukee really does have all the amenities of other large cities without a lot of the headache that is typically associated with them.

Do you see this as a good city for young people?
Absolutely, besides being a city with constant activity, there is so much opportunity for growth and development here, which is great for any young person that wants to be involved.
