Please describe your relevant analytical skills. I have dealt with demographic analysis during the 2011 redistricting process to editorialize against gerrymandering. I have been active in maps during the city code rewrite to see where/what the effects will be, and what it could mean for density/affordability in Austin.
Please describe your ability to be impartial. I'm completely data-driven. Numbers don't lie. Our goal is to form 10 districts with as equal a population as possible, assess demographics and instructions provided by the city, and be compliant with the Voting Rights Act.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I have seen the City of Austin grow throughout the last decade and have found that the unique culture that drives artists, creators, and businesses here still persists, and that involves every resident here to accomplish.
Please provide your employment history. Field Director -- Several Campaigns from 2009-2012 Cap Metro -- Public Involvement from 2013-2104 Small Business Owner (Courier Business) from 2015-2019 Future Realtor from 2020 forward
Please provide any other information you wish to be considered during the selection of the most qualified applicants for the Commission.
