I hope with being a part of this commission I could aid with the voters of Colorado to be better represented with the individuals that are sworn into office. With having no political loyalty and having friends and family on both sides of the spectrum in regards to values, I can prevent subconscious partisanship.
I'm naturally empathetic and I was also raised to treat people the way I want to be treated. So even though I may not own a farm or live the life as an marketing executive, I can see the perspectives from both sides and understand the difference in values. Being impartial in my lifestyle allows me to be more welcoming to external perspectives to consider all variables to the decision making process.
Working as a commercial whitewater guide, I had to analyze my customers with very little information to go off of. All I had was a bus ride up to the put in where I would ask question that would excite and motivate my customers, but it would also give me clues on their confidence, fear, arrogance, personality, and or their expectations. With their body language, tone of voice, along with my experience, I made the decisions to where to put guest to not only have the most fun, but to also get them down the river safely through the whitewater. This process required me to always be analyzing, both the human and the natural, variables in play to make the most logical commands down the river, regardless of the circumstances.
