I love Columbus because…

It has the perfect mixture of the big city opportunities, with a small town feel.

I believe young professionals are important to our city because…

We are the pulse of the city, YP’s create opportunities out of obstacles because many of them refuse to settle for the status quo.

I am a Create Columbus Commissioner because…

I value the growth and opportunities that the city of Columbus has offered me, now I want to make sure that I offer those same growth and opportunities to others.
