What is your story? How did you end up in Milwaukee?

I am currently living in downtown Milwaukee in the Third Ward with my wife Jenna. I have been married for 3 years, and attended Marquette University with a double major in Business: Finance and Entrepreneurship. I work in the Technology vertical as a Sr. Account Manager assisting with customer's data in ways of protecting and securing it as it grows. I enjoy sports Tom Butrymand spending time with family and friends as often as possible.

What keeps you in Milwaukee/What do you like best about Milwaukee?

I was born in Wauwatosa, but moved to Libertyville, IL when I was 5. All of my relatives lived in Milwaukee, so I thought Marquette was a great choice for college. After graduating I moved to Chicago for 2 years of work, until I decided to move back to Milwaukee in 2011.

Favorite spot in the city?

Camp Bar or Sailloft in the Third Ward.

Milwaukee festival you are eager to attend each year?

Summerfest.

What drew you to Echelon?

The people associated with Echelon drew me in. I have known several members for quite some time, and it sounded like a great cause, with the ability to have fun along the way.

Share with us a memorable experience you have had thus far with the organization.

The Koz’s minibowl activity was very fun. It was great to provide some bags of candy, as well as, meet the Echelon family and get to know everyone.

What struggles do you see our city dealing with? What can our generation do to help?

I don’t see our generation giving back enough, which is a large reason why I saw Echelon as attractive as I did. By continuing to educate people within our generation about chapters like Echelon and other volunteering activities, everyone can have fun and give back to the community at the same time.
