North Carolina, Wisconsin, and now… onto Illinois! Clara, Garrett and I couldn’t be more proud of Brian for what’s to come in 2016. Brian was recently offered a position to join Chicago’s, Property Consulting Group, as their Vice President of Innovation. This was a tough decision for him to leave GMR Marketing after almost 9 years, but we are excited for the opportunities that lie ahead and thank our GMR family for everything they’ve done for us.

Brian will join the PCG team at the end of November and we will be setting a goal to move to the burbs of Chicago by May 2016. If you know of anyone that wants to buy a nice house in the Milwaukee burbs, don’t hesitate to reach out to us:)

As for me, over the past year I have come to realize I finally feel “settled” and love what I do. The Milwaukee advertising community is incredible and being the Executive Director of United Adworkers, while managing my social media freelancing clients and R+F, has made me very happy. Of course while getting to spend more time with Clara & Garrett.

So, for all of you Milwaukee United Adworkers, things will operate as normal (see you on the Amtrak to Milwaukee!) and I’m extremely pumped about some unveiling we have coming in 2016 for the club. It’s going to be one of the best years yet as we welcome our new 2016 Board of Directors, reign in a new President (we will miss you Lucian McAfee!) and bring more events and opportunities for our members this year. Only 6 more months til your Milwaukee 99 Entries are due.

For our friends and family, our door is always open for a Chicago visit and good times to follow.

Cheers to 2016!


Thanks to our friends Liz and Ryan for visiting us in Milwaukee in October and taking these family pictures for us. Side note: they are living in an RV and traveling the United States to capture stories of married couples, and recently featured on ABC News. Follow them:
