His goal is to have great stories to tell when he is old. So far he has lived some great stories, and he is excited for more in the future.
He is a lucky individual. The stories he has so far include growing up in rural Kentucky, traveling abroad, witnessing the inauguration of our first African American president, studying in our nation’s capital, leading climate rallies in Copenhagen during an international climate change conference, and many, many more.
Now in DC, he has experienced this city in three very different ways.
First, as a student. He Graduated from American University in May 2011 with a Dual - Degree in Marketing & Communications, and a Minor in Statistics. Choosing to attend American University was one of the best decisions he has ever made, and he is eternally grateful for the stories and knowledge he took away from that campus.
Secondly, as a young professional. He had the privilege of working with Senator Harry Reid, the American Legacy Foundation, MS&L PR, the Consumer Electronics Association, the United States Institute of Peace, TechChange, Technorati, GeniusRocket, and now Uber. He embrace his ambition, but never let it get in the way of getting a job done. He broke down barriers, and challenge the status quo when it’s needed and necessary. He came up with creative solutions to every problem he sees big or small.
Finally, as a citizen. As an American, a Washingtonian, and as a young adult. He makes the most of every moment, and seek to experience the present, the past, and the future as deeply as possible.
He does everything to make every day a learning experience, and every new experience a story. He seeks to share his stories, experiences, and knowledge with everyone he could, through teaching, talking, debating, writing, and most importantly engaging.
