Why did you join ACG WI NextGen?
Several colleagues recommended NextGen as a premier networking offering in the greater Milwaukee area. The diversity of events and subject matter experts have allowed me to expand my knowledge base and viewpoints. NextGen membership has also strengthened my speaking and listening skills, while giving me the privilege to meet with experts in related fields.

What lessons have you learned during the pandemic that you think you will carry over in the long term?
The pandemic quickly shifted the way people work and interact. I have been impressed with the flexibility and accountability of deal team members to complete successful business transactions while managing the safety of everyone involved.

What do you do for fun?
In my free time I enjoy golfing, spending time on the lake, and hanging out with friends.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
A new skill I would like to continue developing is cooking.

What is the best book you have read this past year?
My favorite book that I have recently read is “The Almanack of Naval Ravikant: A Guide to Wealth and Happiness” by Eric Jorgenson.
