Career Milestones

Philadelphia City Council
Director of Policy and Legislation

February 2023 - Present

I head Councilmember Anthony Phillips’ policy team, writing his legislation, coordinating with government entities and stakeholders to get his bills to final passage, and managing zoning policy for the 9th Council District. I also write the Councilmember's speeches and handle media relations.

The Philadelphia Citizen

September 2022 - Present

Drawing on my political and governmental expertise, I write a recurring column for the Philadelphia Citizen, covering the Pennsylvania General Assembly, local politics, and social culture. I also attend the Citizen's editorial meetings and advise on their coverage of local politics.

Greg Scott for PA
Policy Director

February 2022 - November 2022

As the senior policy advisor to the candidate, I advise on statewide legislative affairs, crafting his policy platform, and communicating that platform. The candidate retired as a Montgomery County District Judge to run for the newly mapped House seat in the 54th legislative district. Soon after, he recruited me to join his campaign.

Philadelphia City Council
Legislative Director

June 2021 - August 2022

While leading Councilwoman Cindy Bass and Councilman Bobby Henon's policy teams, I wrote over 60 pieces of legislation — dozens of which are now law — serving as their principal policy advisor and author of all their legislation. I also liaised with the Mayor's Office, Department Commissioners, other Councilmembers, and government attorneys to advance legislation.

Pennsylvania State Senate
Legislative Aide

June 2018 - October 2020

While working for Senator Sharif Street, I authored over a hundred legislative analyses, over eighty letters, and four co-sponsorship memorandums. I also met with numerous special interest groups and drafted several pieces of legislation — one passed with the unanimous consent of the Pennsylvania Senate. For my “effectively analyzed legislation” and being a “fervent advocate for education reform,” I received a citation from the Pennsylvania Senate in 2018.
