I love the Silver Lake community and I want it to continue to be an open, diverse, edgy and friendly place to live. I currently work for a tech startup and want to spend more time being part of the community. I've been involved in Democratic politics working as a volunteer and then an organizer on the ground in a swing state on Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. As a member of the LGBT community, I'm a strong believer in bringing empathy to governing and making sure the marginalized in our society have a voice. I want neighborhood businesses to thrive and for the local economy to work for everyone. I'm excited about the opportunity to serve the community and make it an even better place to live.
