I was born and raised in Mukwonago, WI. and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a BS in Biology and minors in English and Photography. I was the founding editor of the Franklin Citizen in 2007 and most recently was the editor of the Whitewater Register. I currently live in Milwaukee and am an active member within the arts and music community as a photographer, painter and musician. I'm an avid live music fan and have photographed approximately 1,000 bands since 2004.
