Experience and Education

He served in the Finance Department and in the Planning & Development Department for the City of Houston, which allowed him to become a generalist that is capable of working in almost any environment or position.
From a young age, Dylan wanted to work in government. When it was time to complete his education, he knew exactly what he wanted to do- work in the public sector to make a difference.
