Hi there. Welcome to the policy corner.
This site is an outlet for me and my curiosity. Since this is more or less a passion project, I can’t promise regular posts on the blog or the research page. But I can promise that the range of topics I cover will grow to reflect my interest and any reader kind enough to submit a 101 request.
Some of the things I’ll cover will seem of little consequence, or they’ll be just a quick explainer for the unfamiliar. Other things will be much more, namely the “big problems” and maybe the big solutions needed to solve them. Here’s why: we can’t talk about solving problems until we know what they are and understand them well enough.
I hope you’ll read critically, strike up a conversation, and share your thoughts with me.
A little about me:
I’m still getting my feet wet as a public policy analyst and writer, but I do have experience working within city government, research groups, nonprofits, and advocacy organizations. Though I was born and raised in Philadelphia (#GoBirds), I live Chicago and have had stints in California, Utah, Oregon, Alaska, and Indiana. The time spent in these places and others pushed me to look into policy at every level; it’s why I started this site.
