I want to be a voice for our students, parents, and educators. Representation in our democracy is the most important function of our government and its citizens. Stepping into a school district role is an opportunity to be a voice for our community in a time when straightforward communication is a vital necessity. Our community investment to students, parents, and educators is a primary concern for the Bothell community.

I have served my clients for almost 20 years as an attorney has included the United States Air Force, owning and managing a law firm, and representing people who have been injured through no fault of their own. I have learned to value my role as an advisor and voice for my client. Serving our community on the School Board is in line with my previous and current experience as an attorney.

I want the best for our community and the wonderful students, parents, educators, staff, and administrators that are so committed to our schools.

My wife Devin and I are the proud parents of Jude (5) and Juliet (2).  We are committed to being a part of the very best our community has to offer in the Northshore education system.

As a school board member, I would empower students to reimagine their education system and equip them with the skills to thrive in an ever-evolving world. As a product of Northshore and an immigrant myself with children attending school in the district, I understand the transformative power of quality education. My deep connection to this community drives my commitment to ensuring every student has the opportunities they deserve.

In my role as a Washington Human Rights Commissioner, I support labor rights and anti-discrimination policies. This gives me experience navigating the complexities of Olympia to champion public school funding where it matters most.

As a school board member, I will be a strong advocate for students, families, and educators. I will actively listen to our educators and create forums for discussion. I believe in transparent and inclusive decision-making that prioritizes the needs of our community. Together, we can ensure our schools are a place where students can dream big and achieve their goals. I humbly ask for your vote.

Endorsements: Washington/Northshore Education Association, King County Young Democrats, Senator Derek Stanford, Woodinville Councilmember Sarah Arndt, Bothell Deputy Mayor Rami Al-Kabra, King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski, and many more Northshore community members.

Education: Doctor of Engineering & International Management, Texas A&M University; Chemical Engineer, University of Buenos Aires
Occupation: Northshore Schools Foundation Board Member, District Grants; NSD Substitute Teacher

As an NSD parent and long-time volunteer, I believe all students deserve the best education possible so they achieve their fullest potential in a safe and financially sound system. Our future depends on their present!

Schools should provide students with healthy, suitable challenges for all learning levels, to create resilience, develop love for learning, and promote growth for all students.  We must prepare them for a highly competitive world through appropriate academic excellence and consistent opportunities. I believe in critical thinking, fact-based education, encouraging open respectful debate on controversial topics to foster problem-solving and independent thinking.  

Safety has to be our top priority. Amidst declining mental health and escalating crime and bullying, we must restore physical and mental safety for our students and staff. Learning cannot occur when fear is palpable. Let’s be clear: drugs are being dealt and used in our schools. We must join forces to act decisively and help our students get out of harm’s way. 

The current budget deficit calls for savings towards fiscal responsibility and accountability. Let's make sound budgetary decisions for today and the future. Please enable me to put my passion, energy and skills to serve you by trusting me with your vote!
