A researcher by trade and a civic tech activist at heart, he strives to build a more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable world. Additionally, we learn about the good doctor's favorite place to eat (any guesses?) and talk about what he loves about his new home, Las Vegas. He also gives us a sneak peak of a new endeavor he is working on that could revolutionize the way local organizations interact with clients.

We wish this episode would have been sponsored by Mothership Coffee Roasters in Henderson, but its not. Alison had a pretty physical reaction to the goods at Mothership, which some people heard on our instagram. For those that missed it, we at least recap which pastries we enjoyed on this episode. Go for the coffee, but stay for the pastries at this fine local establishment. Please remember to rate and review us on iTunes or any other podcatcher you may use to listen to our show.

This episode was going to be called "The One with the Lawyers" but since that could describe half of our episodes, we decided against it.

We also engage our guests, Sarah Perez and Enrique Acuña, in talk about local food and politics.
