What question should we have asked? What’s the answer?
How are you involved in making your community better outside of your job? I do a lot of bike advocacy, and most recently helped launch a monthly Slow Roll bike ride in Albuquerque. I love helping people find out about cool ways to be active and explore Albuquerque, whether it’s part of my work day or not.
