I am a licensed attorney, having graduated from Northwestern Law School in 2009.
After graduating, I led CPS’ anti-gang task force, in which we developed and launched three initiatives:
Culture of Calm
Culture of Calm implemented several initiatives, such as restorative justice and in-school suspension, within 40 high schools.
Safe Passage continues today and supports student safety through safe walking routes between gang boundaries.
Wrap-around mentoring for 10,000 students most at risk of becoming victims of gun violence.
Currently, and for the past 7 years, I co-lead a locally headquartered education business, Academic Approach.
- I am an elected community representative on the LSC for Lincoln Park High School (in which I focus on security, facilities, and budget).
- I am an elected director of my Lincoln Park neighborhood association, in which I am closely involved in our neighborhood safety.
- I am a member of the Old Town Triangle Association Safety Committee.
- I am an advisory board member of the Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center.
But my favorite role by far is husband to my wife, Dr. Hayley Silver, and as a parent to our two young adorable children.
