What is the role or project you have been a part of that you are most proud of?
I was President Obama’s director and producer for the 2012 campaign. The magic I felt being in the presence of his greatness, it was unmatched. He got health care passed and represented such a vision of what goodness is possible in this country. Every piece of content, interview or shot I directed — I gave it my all and I’m still so thankful for that experience.
What advice would you give to young people who would like to pursue a career in social impact?
Work or volunteer on the campaign of a person you believe in. There is no better way to immediately bond and become connected for a lifetime to some of the brightest and kindest humans who deeply care about leaving the world better than we came into it. You’ll make no money, work a million hours but it is the greatest of gifts.
What is your dream social impact project?
We’re in this horrific moment that also presents a huge opportunity where extreme weather is now touching the lives of so many Americans and so this once far off possibility is now at their front door. I’m working on a campaign that utilizes that specific tangible shift to move people — maybe even some Republicans — who were previously uninterested in climate change to now care, vote, and take action.
