Personal Political Philosophy

My approach to or philosophy of American politics and elections: “I will not take the low road to the highest office in the land.” – John Kasich

The four (4) people (living or deceased) I would invite to dinner for the purpose of better understanding American political life are: Thomas Jefferson, Stephen Colbert, Richard Nixon, Peggy Noonan

Wake the Vote Experience

My most memorable Wake the Vote experience so far: One of my favorite experiences was getting to work at the Republican National Convention this summer. As an intern at the Ohio Republican Party I got a behind the scenes look at how the convention operates. It was fascinating to see how different the environments were around downtown Cleveland, Ohio only events, and the Quicken Loans Arena. I’m so fortunate to be able to have had this opportunity and can’t wait to do it all again in 2020!
