A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Jamie received his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and a master’s degree in public policy from Northwestern University. Jamie brings experience in organizing, planning, and legislative advocacy. Most recently, he worked at the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, where he worked on a wide range of planning efforts.

Jamie loves the outdoors, especially when experienced on a bike, as well as reading, movies, and a variety of sports. (Fun fact: Jamie appeared on the NBC show Chicago PD as an extra – look for the paramedic in Episode 5, Season 1.)
