Mr. Aspiring Elected Official
A true believer in the “generalist” mentality, my experience has been a bit all over the board, but I truly believe it has paid off in terms of my empathy towards people and comprehension of a diverse set of problems. My work in consulting, the military, and at the White House has given me a unique view on leadership and how to approach problems.
