It was for my 12th birthday. My mom took me to see Olodum at the Hollywood Bowl so I was super excited. We made our way to the front and they brought me up on stage with some other kids. We got to play drums for a song – it was a great first concert.
What do you like most about Milwaukee?
The summers here are my absolute favorite – with all the festivals and events. Everyone’s always out and about having a good time. You can go out and chat with so many people, visitors and locals alike. I think that has a lot to say about the people here as well. It’s rare to find a city with so many genuine, friendly people and I admire that.
Best part of working at Radio Milwaukee?
I love working in an organization that sees the power of music and story-telling and uses that to better the community as a whole. The people who help run and support Radio Milwaukee really care about what they do and it’s very inspiring.
I love going to shows and festivals, biking (especially in Fall when the trails are red), and traveling. I try to go to a new festival once a year, I think it’s a fun way to check out a city you’ve never been to and get to meet locals easily.
Ideal Saturday night?
Dinner, drinks and some music. I don’t really have a preference. If I’m with friends, it’s pretty ideal.
