About Connor

Hometown: Tempe, Arizona

What I love about Arizona:
Arizona, Phoenix specifically, is the best place to immediately plug into community. If you're able to physically access people, there's no barriers, no hierarchy to getting involved. It's the best and easiest place to try, fail, and get back up and try again.

Guilty pleasure:
Doughnuts, all the time.

Favorite local business:
Stinkweeds or Welcome Diner

Hidden talent:
Baseball and playing trombone.

Passions:
Punk rock, DIY music, zines, activism.

Proudest moment:
Taking Amtrak across the US.

Favorite quote:
"We'll start to find the answers, when we find community." - Latterman
