Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton, meets attendees following her speech at Anodyne Coffee Roastery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I was able to cover Chelsea Clinton’s appearance in Milwaukee, and while doing so was also able to interview Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. Give a read here.


Successful Annual Report!

November 19, 2016

I’m really happy with this piece that we just finished at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center. This year we chose to feature: our new raptor exhibit, the¬†Preschool Urban Outreach Program, the creation of new trails that invite people of any ability to experience nature, and habitat restoration. I’m really proud to be part of an organization that seeks ways to invite more people to learn about and become enthralled by the natural world. Have a look!

I hope you’ll wait in line with me to vote on Tuesday, November 8.

Fall Panorama Has Arrived!

October 24, 2016

Another splendid welcome to the season from Schlitz Audubon. In this Fall 2016 edition learn about bats, a day at the mews, fall fungi, and more. I’m proud of the quarterly our three person marketing team is able to create with all the help and expertise of our naturalist colleagues.

This is a collaborative piece written and pictured by all the students in my Journalism 320 class. As part of the DiverCity tour we visited the Milwaukee Jewish Community Center, Rehoboth Apostolic Pentecostal Church, and The Islamic Society of Milwaukee West. This first piece is about the JCC.

Here is a piece I wrote about the show. Give it a read and then a watch. And please do look up A Time Before Crack by Jamel Shabazz. Worth your time.
