When did you join YNPN and why did you get involved?
Last year [2015]. Still feel pretty new to Austin, wanted to connect and build relationships with other young nonprofit professionals.

My advice to newcomers looking for a nonprofit job in Austin is...

Austin's nonprofit community is very nurturing. There are so many wonderful opportunities to learn, volunteer, or train to be an effective nonprofit leader. Find an organization that coincides with your passion and get involved!

Who do you most admire in life?
My 2 year old daughter. She's so resilient and I love that about her. She always knows what she wants and will work hard to get it.

What is a skill you'd like to learn and why?
Car repair - It's crucial to have a car in Texas.

What's a perfect day in Austin look like to you?
Going for a run at Pflugerville Lake, traveling to East Austin to pick up a Don Juan taco at Juan In A Million, letting my daughter run free at the Thinkery and possibly ending my night with friends at Midnight Cowboy.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
If place that comes to mind is Havana, Cuba.

Meet Mack and many more members at one of our upcoming events!
