What book has influenced you most?
“Evicted” by Matthew Desmond uses housing as a vehicle to demonstrate the systemic and interconnected challenges that many Americans face in their daily lives. Now I try to mimic this framing to see beyond single issue areas.
What motivates you?
People. I want to support people in achieving their goals.
