What is your job and its responsibilities?

I believe I work for the two most exciting organizations here in the Milwaukee area! I am a Project Planner for Kohl’s Corporation within the Business Integration Mobile eCommerce department and during the NBA season I am a Stats Information Technology Coordinator for the Milwaukee Bucks. At Kohl’s I work with Executive Stakeholders and various talented business teams including Customer Experience, Creative and Information Technology to oversee and direct a project’s progression. Kohl’s was named one the “Top Workplaces” for 2015 by Journal Sentinel and it truly is!

For the Bucks, I setup and maintain a very unique and detailed IT network operation including the stats system network, the Instant Replay system and arena internet connectivity for staff and media. With the unbelievable support from the new ownership and management, the Bucks are bringing back support and excitement to Milwaukee!

What is your favorite Milwaukee beer?

WOW…This is a very difficult question to answer. If I had to choose one it would be Riverwest Stein from Lakefront Brewery.

Favorite place to grab coffee/an after dinner drink?

This is without a doubt Colectivo for coffee and for after dinner drink it is the bar inside the Milwaukee Athletic Club.

Favorite little known fact/secret/hidden gem in Milwaukee?

The Milwaukee Athletic Club membership for young and aspiring professionals is a bit of a hidden gem in my eyes. The network advantages and overall social element it brings by being a member there is unparalleled. The Club has so many things to offer to enhance both your career and overall enjoyment of the city of Milwaukee.

What is the perfect thing to do in Milwaukee on a Sunday afternoon?

As we are finally getting to see the great Milwaukee summer weather, I say hitting up a patio with friends and family for food or a drink. Favorite one on a Sunday is Screaming Tuna….amazing food and drinks with a patio overlooking the river.

Where do you see Milwaukee in five years?

I see Milwaukee having a title contending NBA franchise in the Milwaukee Bucks that will be playing in a state of the art new arena in the middle of amazing entertainment district in the heart of downtown.

    He’s familiar with the Brewers’ record since they got a state of the art new stadium, right? Hope springs eternal.
