I grew up in the Evansville area and I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science from Temple University Japan, which is an American university in Tokyo. I also spent a semester in Norway where I studied Scandinavian politics and Norwegian life and society. I currently work as a teacher. Money needs to stay out of politics, and I plan to run this campaign with no donations from corporations, super PACs, etc. I plan to work to reform the federal system to work better for all people, whether they are poorer, middle class, or rich. All people deserve empathy and compassion, and I want to treat people as I would want to be treated. I follow a utilitarian philosophy in my policies which means I will work towards the most amount of happiness for the most amount of people in the best way I can. Please read the positions and proposals on this website.
