Serenity now and sanity later

Background

I cut my teeth in politics working in Nassau County politics in 2003 as a bright eyed and bushy tailed intern. I caught the bug that election day and haven’t quite looked back. I spent 4 years at Mission Control Inc. and focused most of my time on the Voter Participation Center’s Voter Registration and Vote by Mail programs helping to register a million voters and generating over 500,000 vote by mail applications. I also dabble in non-profit fundraising, digital campaigning, and technology.

First Job

Summer sleepaway camp counselor for 8 year olds, I even received the “Counselor of the Year” award!

Career Highlights

Registering a million people to vote in 2012, helping to win 2 marriage equality campaigns in 2012 (ME & MN)
