Tell us about yourself: who you are, where you're from, etc.

I grew up in Italy, the son of an Italian father and an American mother. I have lived in the US intermittently in my twenties while I pursued a PhD in history. Ten years and several relocations later I find myself heading marketing for a large online dating company. I like cooking, baseball, aviation and public policy.

What does being a "Centrist" mean to you, and why did you get involved?

I believe there is a balance to restore between policy and politics: ideological exasperation has purged political parties of common sense and the ability to put country ahead of party. I am a "Centrist" to raise the level of public debate and placing policy at the center of politics again.

How do you think we can unite our country and fix our politics?
