I was born in Hawaii, and ended up in Sweden in 1991 after getting my sociology BA at MSU. I got my sociology Ph.D at Stockholm University, and have worked as an analyst at the Swedish Agency for Public Management since 2011. I have worked on the campaigns of Bernie Sanders in 2016 and 2020, have organized events and been the contact person for Sweden for Bernie in 2020, and campaigned on the groud for Bernie in SC in 2020. I phonebanked for DA Sweden to up participation in the general in 2016 and in the GPP in 2020, and serve on the ExComm of the DA Sweden Progressive Caucus. I ardently support tuition-free higher education, as well as single-payer public health care--vital planks in Sanders' program, whose time I believe has come in America, and which I want to see in the Democratic Party platform for the upcoming election.
