I’m a Minnesota man who moved to Milwaukee for love.
The energy, the lake and Bloody Marys with burgers in them.
I enjoy basking in warm summer days while having brunch on the rooftop at Café Benelux.

What drew me to Echelon was the opportunity to support an amazing organization like The Salvation Army with some of the most positive and ambitious people in Milwaukee. I knew that being a part of this group would give me the chance to make an immediate impact on our community and improve the lives of others.
My first Echelon event is probably the most memorable. The event that month was kayaking on the Milwaukee River and it was a blast. The sun was setting and the city looked bright and shiny and there was laughter abound. It was a great way to explore the city and get to know everyone in the group.
Lack of access to high quality education is one of the biggest challenges that face our community. Developing quality delivery methods that teach, motivate and inspire are going to be essential to improve our youth culture. Leadership and accountability from organizations like The Salvation Army and groups like Echelon can give support to those in need and build lasting relationships that focus on the importance of education and the dreams it can help realize.
