I love Columbus because…

I’m a born and raised Ohioan and a Midwesterner at heart. Columbus embodies much of what I love about our state and the region. Our city’s demographic makeup closely mirrors the U.S. as a whole, we have a variety of industries, we’re centrally located, and growing rapidly. But most importantly, the people are incredibly kind, warm, and community orientated.

I believe young professionals are important to our city because…

In many ways, the prosperity of a city can be measured by how its young people are supported. Access to affordable housing, economic opportunity, and education are all important factors. It’s cliche, but without young people there is no future for our city.

I am a Create Columbus Commissioner because…

It’s important to me that as Columbus continues to grow that the growth is equitable, and for all, not just the few. I believe that young professionals should be provided with opportunities to help shape this growth, and the Commission is one such opportunity.
