Director of Events

First concert: 
Shawn Cassidy at the Dane County Coliseum. Just me and my flip-flash camera.

First album I owned:
I won a John Denver album when I was in elementary school.

Best concert:
This is a tough one. I’d say it’s probably my first visit to Summerfest in the 80’s to watch one of my favorite bands: The Manhattan Transfer.

Something no one in the office knows about you:
I met many rock stars and worked with Pete Townsend while I worked for the producers of Broadway’s The Who’s Tommy in NYC.

Favorite place to take a visitor in Milwaukee: 
Food! I love finding local restaurants that will offer items they might like but also give them an opportunity to try new flavors and combinations. Milwaukee has so much to offer by way of food. Unless I need a fast meal, there’s almost no reason for me to go to a large chain restaurant. Local is the way to go; you can taste the culture and take a journey through the world of food right here in MKE.

Comfort drink: 
I love a glass of dry red wine and almost anything with mezcal in it. Although I have to say coffee is my drug of choice.
