To quote a former Florida coordinated campaign director, I will forever be a neighborhood team leader.
Until very recently, I was the Organizing & Outreach Director for the Broward Democratic Party, and before that, the Regional Organizing Director (and former voter registration field organizer) with the Florida Democratic Party. My talented staff, volunteers, and volunteer leaders helped put Broward at the top of every statewide list for 20+ months!
Growing partnerships between the Democratic Party and community stakeholders has been one of my chief priorities – and it’s fun! It doesn’t get much better than creating community for folks who feel disconnected.
I currently sit on the Board of Directors for the Broward Young Democrats, which is a party caucus.
Organizing during the first presidential campaign in a global pandemic with the Democratic Party of Wisconsin and the Biden-Harris Presidential Campaign was challenging but so rewarding. Our volunteer leaders were able to pivot from canvassing to phonebanking and still deliver a win in the field.
Next, I joined the team at For Our Future Action Fund and organized Milwaukee’s Sherman Park & Riverwest areas. Electing a qualified State Superintendent of Public Instruction is especially important to voters in these underserved communities. Voters chose the progressive candidate.
My wife and I co-founded Menomonee Falls Action Team in 2017 and we saw Democratic turnout in our very conservative community increase by more than 3%. We helped deliver a gubernatorial, Wisconsin Supreme Court, and U.S. Senate win in 2018, while building a volunteer infrastructure for future elections.
Before I got into politics, I was a business owner, economic development guy, newspaper reporter and blogger, and radio DJ in Chicago and Wisconsin.
