Originally from California, Nathan came to Washington eight years ago with a passion for civil rights and assisting marginalized communities. During his time here, he has worked on a range of issues from employment discrimination to indigenous peoples’ rights in developing nations.

Nathan recently graduated from the George Washington University School of Law. There, he was president of the law school’s LGBT student association and was proud to lead the organization while the nation achieved marriage equality. While in law school, he also worked in a variety of public policy and advocacy positions, including with Senator Al Franken on the Senate Judiciary Committee and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.

Nathan is particularly excited to be able to continue working to build consensus and solutions to contentious social and political issues at Third Way. He enjoys the challenge of finding creative answers to some of the country’s most pressing problems.

When not working, he spends much of his free time skiing with family and geeking out over all things science fiction.
