Joe: Squeaky Curd Founder & Writer
Like many of the young people currently in Milwaukee, I was born and bred in a nearby suburb. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I began working for an electrical engineering company in St Louis. It wasn’t until I’d lived in another big city that I realized how perfect of a fit Milwaukee really had been for me. Spending less than a year in STL, I jumped at an opportunity to move back home. After residing in downtown Milwaukee (East Town, Juneautown, take your pick) for a couple years, I’ve decided to retire from the city hustle to Bay View. I like doing activities and eating edible things. I dislike being hangry.

I was born and raised in Brookfield, and made the bold move to leave the state of Wisconsin to attend the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities. Realizing that I couldn’t be without my beloved Milwaukee Brewers, I moved back to Milwaukee and will likely never leave. I spend my days drinking work beers at Milwaukee’s Coolest Office, and my evenings as a homeowner and landlord in Bay View. When I’m not glued to my television or radio for Brewers baseball, you can find me with Cal, my Australian Shepherd, or on the golf course desperately trying to get my handicap under 18 so I can say I play “bogey golf”.

A Waukeshan by birth, I headed south to attend Saint Louis University and escape Wisconsin. After four and a half years away, I realized I couldn’t wait to move back to the Badger state. Now a happy resident of Bay View, I’m an occupational therapist by day and an editor, chef, & beer connoisseur by night. I love exploring all MKE has to offer. As a Packers Owner and season ticket waiting list member #59,316, I also bleed green & gold.

Loving everything that is Wisconsin, I have lived here my whole life. Growing up in Waukesha and attending the University of Madison shaped me into the true Wisconsinite that I am. I currently teach 6th grade in Madison, educating Wisconsin’s youth in fractions, commas, and everything in between. In my free time, I do anything that involves the fine arts or rec league volleyball.
Jeremy: Welcome to Thursdays Co-Founder and Writer
Born in Milwaukee and moved to Texas at the early age of 14, I never got to experience Milwaukee, so I made it a point to move back as soon as I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso. I live for exploring this great city and find that there is something new to learn behind every corner. That is why Wecome to Thursdays was created. When I’m not out exploring Milwaukee I am either selling traffic signs, playing video games, or coming up with my next ridiculous tale of Old Milwaukee greatness. Cheers.
