Between 2008 and 2011, he was the Producer at community-based public radio station 88Nine RadioMilwaukee, creating nearly 1000 short-form audio pieces covering a wide range of topics, from arts and culture to at-risk youth, from Milwaukee neighborhoods to basic and human needs. Currently, he finds work at the intersection of community and communication, exploring new directions to explore the rigor and creativity of narrative as well as passion for community.

Please note this is a one way hike so return trip arrangements should be made. The Milwaukee County Blue Line bus is also available from Downtown to National Avenue (just a few blocks from the Urban Ecology Center)
