I love Columbus because…

I grew up in a couple different places; Columbus has a little bit of each of those places. Columbus can act like a gateway to to the rest of the world, a true global hub, or feel as small and cozy as my quiet neighborhood in Northland. Columbus is responsive to my needs and mood and has a place for all.

I believe young professionals are important to our city because…

Today’s generation prioritizes inclusivity and equity in a ways that hasn’t been previously achieved. Young professionals are fighting for the equitable inclusion of voices that have historically been left out of important decision making. The equitable Columbus of tomorrow relies on the the inclusion of young professionals today.

I am a Create Columbus Commissioner because…

Columbus is better when we fight for one another.
