  • When my family and I were looking for a home in the Milwaukee area, we sought high-quality schools, walkability and proximity to Lake Michigan as well as the vibrancy of city life. We found all of that here in Shorewood. It's the conversations, friendships, laughter and support we share with our neighbors that make this Village a home. I've lived in enough places to understand what we have here is special and I'm excited to work with the community to help make Shorewood an even better and more equitable community.
  • I am married to my wife Paula and have two children, Andrew and Marie. I grew up in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Milwaukee and went to college for journalism. In 2006, I took a job at Miller Brewing Company and that opportunity brought me to Shorewood.
