Our beautiful mountains, trees, and great schools have drawn many families to Snoqualmie. Just as Snoqualmie has provided my family with so many opportunities, I look forward to giving back to the community by serving on the City Council. My primary goals are to protect our parks; repair and replace our aging infrastructure; and make sure Snoqualmie remains a place to live, work, and play for generations to come by expanding our inclusive housing programs and providing walkable access to retail.
Prior to my work on council, I served as president of the Ridgestone HOA and as Chair of the Planning Commission. In these positions, I have worked through complex policies and balanced the varied interests of the residents of our city. On the council, I will continue to address the needs of our community and conserve Snoqualmie’s natural scenery by ensuring future growth is done sustainably.
I am a high school physics teacher and father of two. I love to hike on the many trails through the I-90 corridor and travel with my family. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in geology from California State University, Chico and a Master of Education degree from the University of Washington. Prior to teaching I was a research astronomer studying double stars and exoplanets.
