Jeff Richgels


Almost all of my time is devoted to my job as an online editor at Capital Newspapers, operating, competing at bowling and working out. I am intense, focused and extremely driven when working, competing or working out, but very laid back and relaxed in the small amount of free time I have.

I spend that free time with my long-time girlfriend Susan Dyhr and our rescue boxer Otis. We like to go up north to her family’s cabin in the summer, attend beerfests, go to casinos, watch sports and hang with family and friends. We are fans of the Wisconsin Badgers, Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers and Milwaukee Bucks.
