I am a lifelong resident of Chicago who has been participating in Occupy Chicago protests since October 9th, 2011. During this time I have bounced between unemployment and multiple temporary part time jobs.
My primary role at Occupy Chicago is librarian. I am also active in supporting political prisoners of the Occupy movement, most notably the NATO 5. Additionally, I am on the Occupy Chicago press team and often give media interviews.
I strive to work with other Occupy activists all over the country and world to pool knowledge and generate creative solutions to the challenges we all face.
