Please describe your relevant analytical skills. I have experience working with large data sets, developing information from them, and communicating that information in an intelligible and digestible form to other people. I do it as a profession by managing a team of analysts in a corporate environment, so I also work well with others as a team.

Please describe your ability to be impartial. I believe in the democratic system. So even when things aren't "going your way", if citizens participate in the system in good faith and with earnestness it will work out in the end. My commitment then is to be fair and honest with the genuine belief that that will produce the most desirable end result for all of us eventually.

Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I have a toddler, so I'm deeply invested in the environment she's going to grow up in. She's just gotten old enough to go on trail hikes with me, and her appreciation of nature has really deepened mine. She's also been able to participate in activities at the public library, the YMCA, and enjoy a lot of the public good this city has to offer. I'm invested in trying to protect that and make that available to as many others as possible. I see the benefits my daughter gets from these public goods.
Please provide your employment history. I manage business analysts for a property insurer's claims department. I have project management experience, experience working with large data sets, and work well with a team. Has ranged from storm damage prediction models, involving modeling complex weather data over large data sets of property data, to responding to regulatory audits and findings.
