Organization and Advocacy Experience

I'm proud to serve as a Precinct Captain in the East Colfax Neighborhood of Denver. Not only do I provide information and resources for voter registration, but also information on upcoming races and ballot initiatives. I consider the right to vote sacred, and it is best exercised by a well-informed citizenry.

I want to ensure the process focuses on data and transparency, and not politics. With my extensive education and experience in Systems Engineering, I believe a mathematically balanced map is achievable and ideal for the voters of Colorado.
