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

I was born in New York, raised in Washington, DC and currently live in Northern Virginia. I am currently working as a consultant and freelancer.

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

As a Centrist, I listen to and understand both sides of positions dealing with policy then work towards common sense solutions. I decided to get involved because I am impressed with the efforts the Centrist Project has done to educate people about electing Independents to office.

What is a policy issue you are passionate about and why?

I am passionate about electoral reform. I believe that the voting process needs to be inclusive regardless of political affiliation and socioeconomic status status in our society.

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

Our country can unite by being a truly inclusive society that respect the opinions and beliefs of our fellow citizens. We can fix our politics by holding our elected officials accountable for their actions in their roles. Our country also needs to provide more options for candidates to run for public office. This will voters engaged in the political process because they will have a voice that represents them.

Anything else you'd like to add?

I am glad to see that more Black/African Americans are becoming Independents. We need alternatives in the political process.
