Bio Information

I am a Milwaukee history buff who has written a number of articles on Milwaukee, including the Beer Barons, Milwaukee River, Mac Arthur Family, City Hall and How Milwaukee got its name. I give tours, provide staffing for the annual Spaces & Traces, and provide historical talks for Historic Milwaukee. I also provide tours for Forest Home Cemetery and have worked on providing tombstones for Beer Barons that are without. One of my favorite projects was the reenactment of the one hundred anniversary of the attempted assassination of Theodore Roosevelt. I am also a member of Historic Milwaukee Inc., Visit Milwaukee, Pabst Mansion, Milwaukee County Historic Society, and The Museum of Beer and Brewing. Currently I also sit on the board for The Museum of Beer and Brewing, and the Open Door Café, which provides meals for the less unfortunate.
