Housing Story

I first joined the workforce during the Great Recession and spent the better part of a decade looking for a secure foothold in the job market. I eventually found stability, but I was lucky—and too many others were not.

Biography

Jeff was formerly Vice President of Product at Postmates, an on-demand logistics platform. He holds a B.A. in Political Science with a Minor in Economics from San Jose State University.

Why Housing Matters

We waste our collective potential by allowing bad housing policy to make everything more costly. What’s worse, this burden falls disproportionately on the those least able to bear it. We rob entire segments of the population of their chance at upward mobility. This is unconscionable.

Why I Support YIMBY Action

YIMBY Action represents the next stage in the most important political movement of our generation. Not because housing is the only thing that matters, but because housing is inextricably tied to everything that does. Housing is the highest-leverage policy area to affect change. YIMBY Action is the highest-leverage opportunity to bring that change.
