Midwest Youth Engagement Manager

Issac is a Midwestern gamer who spends a lot of time thinking about queer characters in media. He spent a lot of his time during high school in Indiana doing youth advocacy for LGBTQ+ rights and for LGBTQ+ youth’s rights in schools. Since then, that passion has not gone anywhere and he is excited to bring those experiences to his work with Keshet as their Midwest Youth Engagement Manager.

Prior to working with Keshet, Issac worked for Repair the World as a Service Corps member, partnering with Jane Addams Senior Caucus, a nonprofit organization in Chicago that works directly with seniors. Before that, he worked with the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs, a Chicago-based organization that works on various issues, including economic justice, which was the campaign he worked on.

Issac graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a BA in Game Art and double minored in Women, Gender and Sex Studies & Animation. He lives in Chicago with his partner and likes to spend his free time playing games with friends. He hopes to write and publish his own comic book series one day.
