I love Columbus because…

Even though I am not from here, it truly feels like home and that has a lot to say about this city’s character. It’s a city that embraces diversity and that is hard to find.

I believe young professionals are important to our city because…

We will shape what this city has to offer in the coming years and we will instill those values to the following generations.

I am a Create Columbus Commissioner because…

I want to help move the needle. Columbus is a wonderful place but we still have a lot of work to do and I am excited to be able to help do this with such a high caliber group of people.
