About Felix

Felix has been a Midtown resident since moving to Alaska to study at Alaska Pacific University. At APU, Felix was elected the student body president, where he started taking a keen interest in politics as an avenue to do the people's work. With his bachelor's in hand, Felix ending up working as a consultant on a variety of issues affecting Anchorage residents as well as candidate campaigns. Most recently, Felix worked in the Berkowitz Administration (July 2015 to June 2016) as the Mayor’s Constituent Liaison and Special Assistant, working in several issue areas, like chronic homelessness, community policing, customer service, and with the Federation of Community Councils. While studying journalism at APU, Felix interned with the Anchorage Daily News, covering a variety of events around town. He also worked with Catholic News Service in DC, an international wire service, and his stories were published around the world. In his spare time, Felix enjoys working with nonprofits -- sitting on the board of directors of three nonprofits that serve the immigrant and refugee (Alaska Institute for Justice), public transit (Public Transit Advisory Board), and Anchorage youth (Anchorage Youth Court) communities -- and reading, writing, and playing the viola.
