CEO, Parliament Inc
My story: I am originally from Colfax, CA. The thing I’m most passionate about this year is finding ways to be a better "dual citizen” in America, as someone who grew up in a small rural town, who works every day in the middle of enormous innovation in the Bay Area. Most people don't know that I have the middle name of “Eagle” which is because my family is very Californian, and because I was born in the bicentennial month and year (July 1976). My dad also didn’t want me to be Richard M. Sims IV, for which I will be forever grateful.
