Growing up in a single income household, Nathan witnessed how hard it was to afford the basic needs. His first jobs were in coffee and retail, where he was paid starvation wages while paying $800/month in rent.
He has worked in sales, big tech, and now big law as a Certified Paralegal with the ABA. He is also studying Political Science at DePaul University to learn more about how his political career can support the community.
The skills he has gained over the past eight years living in Chicago will be able to create an even better city for all.
