What year did you start at VISIT Milwaukee?


What makes working at VISIT Milwaukee special?

I've been a part of the Milwaukee hospitality industry for nearly a decade; and now, with VISIT Milwaukee, I am in the uniquely amazing position to introduce our one-of-a-kind hospitality to our city's visitors - and it's the best! 

What is something fun about you?

I have an unhealthy (and very expensive) love for live music. On any given week, there's a good chance you'll find me at one of Milwaukee's many music venues, whether it's to check out a local band or cross a favorite international artist of my list.

What are some of your "can't miss" Milwaukee experiences?

All of our summer festivals are a blast, but my best suggestion is to spend a day at Summerfest without a plan. You can bop around from stage to stage, eating great food and sampling local beer. In fact, I've discovered some amazing bands that way! 

If you could only eat one Milwaukee staple food forever, what would it be?

When garnished properly, a bloody mary basically covers all the food groups...
