I love Columbus because…

The attitude. This city has a chip on its shoulder and wants to be the best it can be. It’s this drive that will continue to push Columbus to be one of the best cities in the US.

I believe young professionals are important to our city because…

A healthy and thriving downtown is the heartbeat of any city. It is critical to engage young professionals to shape a downtown where a young professional wants to work and play.

I am a Create Columbus Commissioner because…

I have a lot of pride for Columbus and think it has a bright future. We got to this point on the shoulders of others who have the same vision and it’s important to keep the momentum.
