Walker’s journalism upbringing was designed to make a social impact. He covered mental health, police misconduct, education as well as national and international politics. Walker launched his own politics and news website, reported live on Election Night 2016 and, ultimately, realized he didn’t want to be a journalist. Rather than simply writing about the change he wished to see in the world, he decided to facilitate the change in all sectors by collaborating directly with nonprofit advocates and impact pioneers.
Walker joined the GreenHouse team as an Editorial Fellow in the Fall of 2018 to support and advance the company’s mission. He is also a Junior Associate at Prosper Strategies, a communications consultancy for nonprofits.
Walker studied journalism and political science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He is a news junkie, a travel enthusiast and a Chicago native. ::
