Raised Right, Right Here In Missouri
Expanded My Experiences Through Travel
These experiences broadened my perspective by seeing life through the eyes of others which helped me learn and grow. I truly appreciate everywhere I have lived and everything I have seen and experienced. I feel fortunate that I am equally acquainted and comfortable with rural life and farming as I am with mass transit and urban living.

Ambition To Create Something New
I have made my living largely through communication arts, primarily in the civic sector. I am currently the Director of Digital Strategy for the St. Louis Symphony. Recently I was invited to speak to many of the world’s largest arts organizations about my vision for a digital and social future. I have also proudly represented Missouri for three years (regionally and across the country) for the official Lewis and Clark bicentennial celebration as an extension of the Missouri History Museum.
Compassion as Conviction
With an openness ingrained in me by my family and experiences, I strive to approach everything with an open mind and heart. You’ll often hear me proclaim, “I know enough to know that I don’t know much, and that’s why I need you.” That’s why I seek others to understand, to learn, to share.
It’s because of this that regardless of the issues, I fight as fiercely as a warrior for equity in all things. My single, most sacred belief is that no human has lesser, or greater, value than any other. The inequality of rights faced by so many communities whether by race, gender, sexuality or belief system is the primary motivation in my fight for equity in all things for all Missourians.
