Chris grew up in New York City before attending Brown University, graduating in 2016. He moved to Washington, DC and joined the policy team of Enterprise Community Partners, a non-profit affordable housing advocacy organization in 2017. At Enterprise, he developed a passion for the intersection of implementing good public policy and advancing social justice. Beginning as an appropriations intern, his role ultimately included responsibility for writing important public facing communications, including op-eds and Comment Letters in response to administrative notices posted in the Federal Register.
In September of 2019, Chris was appointed Policy Fellow for Enterprise’s 2020 Election Engagement efforts. In this role, Chris managed outreach to Presidential campaigns and worked with media partners to promote the importance of affordable housing. In Chris’s final assignment before departing for GULC, he wrote and managed production of the video component for a pair of virtual round table events on affordable housing, sponsored by Enterprise and hosted by The Hill, which was viewed by over 50,000 unique visitors.
In his free time, Chris works on the Resource Committee for ONE DC, an economic development and racial justice organization located in DC, writing grants that support their work advancing fair housing initiatives, protecting workers, and furthering economic opportunity within the community.
He looks forward to a Georgetown experience that will give him the tools he needs to increase access to justice and break down systemic barriers.
