I help conduct efficient and culturally conscious public research that leads to an improved quality of life for our communities now and for future generations. Outside of work, I support nontraditional candidates for state and local elected office, and as a nationally certified competitive gymnastics judge, I help ensure that trans and nonbinary youth athletes can train and compete safely and equitably. In my free time I can be found hiking, tabletop gaming, and/or trying new recipes with my wife.
An anti-racist PRR dismantles systems of advantage based on race when and wherever possible. We engage staff of all racial identities in dismantling white supremacy culture at work. This includes personal ideologies, beliefs, and behaviors. And, it includes removing white supremacy culture from the systems, cultural messages, institutional policies, procedures, and practices that PRR and our staff interact with and inform. We believe it is not enough to be “not racist.” We must be “anti-racist.”
