Statement

Redistricting is arguably the most important component of democracy and ensuring that it is completed in a fair and unbiased way is paramount to a healthy democratic system.

Statement on Working with Consensus

I tend to take a very logical, data backed approach to problem solving which leads itself to being impartial and fair. Consensus is best reached when opinions are not the driving factor but evidence is.

Everything from running FEA (finite element analysis) in complex designs to making difficult business decisions with business partners is driven by understanding the system as a whole and looking at the problem from every direction to be able to have all the available knowledge to make the best decision possible
