I love Columbus because…

It’s sense of community, great education for the whole family. Its a big city with a small city feel. The diversity. The Opportunity. The Love!

I believe young professionals are important to our city because…

They have a voice and an opportunity to make things happen. Columbus is a city that wraps there arms around YP and says hey we want to hear from you. YP are important to our city because they aren’t just the future of our city, but they are the NOW of our city. If we don’t embrace them while they are being developed into the men and women that God has created them to be, then we will lose them to other cites and have an impact there.

I am a Create Columbus Commissioner because…

I see the value of making a seat at the table for the future generations. I want to make sure that the voice is being heard for all race and nationalities. I want to see Columbus grow to its potential. I want to make sure that I am a part of history.
