Milwaukee All-Star: Audio / video master Henry Huggins
Every week in 2015, OnMilwaukee.com and local design company Too Much Metal join forces to introduce the latest member of the Milwaukee All-Stars – a team of unfamiliar winners living in the city who consistently and diligently make it shine. Each week, a new member will join the team – based on your recommendations – and at the end of the year all will come together in a Rally of the Raddest Milwaukeeans. We're not sure what that means quite yet, so for now, meet …
Henry Huggins has worked in audio and video for about 20 years. He currently works for Elite Audio & Video providing sound and lighting for performances in bars, clubs and home theaters.
"Working as a union stage hand is one of the things I love the most," he says. "I love my work because I'm always moving around and I get to be a part of building or making things happen."
Huggins, a graduate of Vincent High School, puts his heart into everything he does, both work and play, which landed him the Milwaukee All-Star spot this week.

HH: My favorite smell is the taco trucks around lunch time.
OMC / TMM: What is your hope for the city?
HH: My hope for this city is that we only get stronger as a city and to someday kick this silly violence kick we're on. One can only hope.

OMC / TMM: If you could high five one Milwaukeean, whom would it be?
