I took this photo at the South Shore Yacht Club on Lake Michigan in Milwaukee’s Bayview neighborhood.
I ended up on WUWM’s Bubbler Talk asking a question about the history of Milwaukee’s Bridge Wars. I’m not sure why my throat sounds like it’s being massaged by a belt sander – I swear I’m fine. Go here to listen to some fun and interesting Milwaukee history.

Here is my final television reporting piece for this semester, a spotlight on Walker’s Point and Fuel Cafe’s Two Wheel Thursday. For this one we had to come in at longer than 60 seconds and under 1:20.
Within one brief brainstorming meeting we came up with the theme, name, and basic layout for the invitation for our Annual Gala at Schlitz Audubon. Below is the invitation, completed within a few days after selecting props. I love working with a nimble in-house creative team, how we can come up with ideas that excite us and have the resources and trust from our colleagues to make what we imagine live within hours or days.
