Born in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, my dad moved my mom, my sister and myself down to Bartow county, Georgia when I was only two years old. Growing up in the backwoods of northwest Georgia has shaped who I am. Country and redneck culture have informed my ideals of doing for others, and doing good work, however thankless. After graduating from high school in 2011, I took a semester off and interned on the Buddy Roemer for President campaign in New Hampshire. It was an obvious moment, prior to being radicalized, when I both still believed in electoral politics, and when I appreciated Governor Roemer's economic, anti-Wall Street, stances. I came back from New Hampshire and went right into my first semester at Georgia Highlands College. [More to come]
