Where do you work and what makes your role awesomesauce?
I work at Associated Bank in Commercial Real Estate. Aside from working with great people day-in and day-out what makes my role awesomesauce is being an integral part of Milwaukee’s transforming skyline by working directly with our developers on their financing structure to execute their projects. I am confident that Milwaukee’s skyline will be highly talked about in the next 10 years across the nation.
What is something that is missing from our community that you would love to see implemented?
Skywalks connecting all of Downtown Milwaukee’s key mid- and high-rise buildings. As all Wisconsinites know, winters can be brutal.
Generalization: The City is segmented and connectivity is missing.
What is one word that you would use to describe Milwaukee?
HOMEY. Milwaukee is home.
What local restaurant is at the top of your list?
I love BRUNCH! Milwaukee has some of the BEST brunch spots, and my one of my favorites is Simple Cafe on Farwell.
What is your favorite Milwaukee tradition?
Summerfest – Nothing like getting together with friends and family by one of Milwaukee’s greatest assets, Lake Michigan, and enjoying food and drinks while listening to some of the best bands around LIVE.
What does your ideal Milwauee weekend look like?
Waking up early on a Saturday morning and going for a long 10+ mile run along the lakefront followed by a stop at Colectivo on the Lake for a latte. The day would continue by meeting friends at a Downtown bar and shuttling to a Brewers Game where we would tailgate and watch the Brewers (hopefully) bring home the W. The night would end with drinks on a patio or walking around a summer festival listening to music. The weekend would be topped off with a Sunday Brunch and a walk around the City. There is so much to do and see in Milwaukee. As a Milwaukee native, I don’t take advantage of all the wonderful local restaurants, bars, shops and our biggest asset, Lake Michigan, enough.
