It’s a rare privilege to uncover why people think the way they do. There’s a certain resolve that comes from understanding our differences. This industry allows me to learn so much about the issues and policies that are shaping our society which in turn informs my own positions along the way. And in a small way, I believe I’m helping make good change happen.
