WHO IS MICAH?
Micah is a public servant, and he is here to serve Queens. His entire life has been dedicated to service. An Arizona native, Micah attended Oberlin College in Ohio, receiving a BA in History and East Asian Studies. He has a Master of Public Policy from the UCLA School of Luskin Affairs. He spent two years working with the Urban League in Phoenix, helping to reduce recidivism through workplace development programs. When he moved to Sunnyside nine years ago, he wanted to do the best he could for the community. He has volunteered with Impulse Group NYC, an advocacy group for gay men in NYC to engage in deeper conversations, serving as Advocacy Director in 2018. He currently serves as a co-host to the radio show Queer State of Mind on Radio Free Brooklyn, a radio show focused on pop culture and politics for queer people of color since 2016. He is a Product Manager with the NYC Department of Education.
Micah has explored the district as a cyclist, exploring so many of the roads and crossing the paths of so many other Queens residents along the way. So much progress in this district has been made to create protective bike lanes and make it for so many New Yorkers. District 26 is the crossroads between both Manhattan and Brooklyn for Queens bikers, and Micah believes the district can be the model for all bike lanes not just for Queens but other boroughs too. He wants to create an accessible and safe city for all bike riders and drivers alike.
