What made you join MKE CoWork?
I initially joined to meet the people here who are into real estate, but very quickly fell in love with the coworking space.
What is your favorite thing about coworking?
I really enjoy the ability to hunker down and work if I don’t want to be distracted, or to visit the common areas if I want to socialize.
Did you ever have a favorite teacher- why were they your favorite?
My favorite teacher is Mr. Hayes who was my computer science teacher in high school. He always made class entertaining and tried to relate what we learned to the real world.

Chamath Palihapitiya, Ray Dalio, Jordan Peterson, and Joe Rogan.
What’s the hardest lesson you ever had to learn?
