Evan Solochek and Savanah Ladd

RSS Feed

Evan Solochek was born and raised in Milwaukee, a lifelong East Sider who loves nothing more than a good cheeseburger, a crisp slice of watermelon and a generous slice of blueberry pie.

Though he works as a Communications Specialist at Columbia St. Mary's, his background is in journalism. He graduated from Boston University in 2005 with a degree in communication/print journalism. Upon returning home to be with his then-girlfriend/now-wife, Evan hooked up with Vital Source Magazine, where he learned the ins and outs of Milwaukee's fine arts scene.

After three years there, and rising to the role of Managing Editor, Evan moved on to Milwaukee Magazine. There he spent the next five years overseeing the insider section, helping maintain the website and dabbling in food writing, among other things. Working with one of the best in the business, Evan picked up the finer points of food criticism, discovered some hidden gems and even spent the better part of a year hunting for the city's best nachos. He applied these lessons to his own Cheap Eats food blog, which can still be found online if you look really hard.

Today, Evan has migrated to Bay View (like one does when they approach 30) and lives with his wife, Emily, and their two dogs, Jack and Penny.

Savanah Ladd hails from Hartland but has spent most of her adult years on the East Side. She spent five years at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; her indecisive ways made selecting a major a difficult process, but she ultimately made her move and graduated with a degree in business administration.

Throughout college, Savanah worked at Alterra at the Lake, where she learned to handle large amounts of people with grace. After six years of making lattes, she decided to begin her career and moved on to an Internet marketing internship at ProHealth Care. Shortly after, she took a job as an Account Coordinator at Ascedia and still holds this position today.

In her spare time, Savanah devours any magazine or blog post that publishers are willing to print or post. She's even been known to steal her boyfriend's GQ magazine when he's not looking. Her other hobbies include fashion, food and watching the Green Bay Packers win the Super Bowl.
