What is the most local government-y thing you have done on vacation? 

My last vacation to Alaska was tacked on to a work site visit to the Municipality of Anchorage, so the first two days were all local government.

If I was booking the guests for the GovLove podcast, I would book…

Troy Moon and Julie Rosenbach, Sustainability Directors of Portland and South Portland, Maine, to discuss their collaborative climate change planning efforts.

If you could only have wine OR chocolate for the rest of your life, which would you choose?


What’s one thing you want to do/see when you’re in Durham?

I’m hoping for a Zion Williamson sighting.

#ELGL19 will be a success in my book if this happens: 

I return home inspired by all the great work happening in cities across the country.

Who is your mentor?

A colleague at my last job who went on to become one of my dearest friends.

What’s the most interesting thing you’re working on right now?

Cities of Service is creating a guide of citizen engagement techniques for local governments. Right now we’re having a blast talking to city officials on their experience using these techniques in their own work.

What’s your pet peeve?

The continued existence of Styrofoam. Shouldn’t it be illegal by now?
