Education: St. Francis, Aviation HS, Washington State University, Columbia, London School of Economics, Harvard Kennedy School
Occupation: Political Director, Congressman Derek Kilmer

I love serving my hometown. Growing up in Burien, I worked for local businesses to put myself through school. Now, I get to help working Burien families like my own. As your City Councilmember, I’ve worked hard on pandemic recovery, lower utility tax bills for seniors, and funding police and emergency services.


I’m running again because City Council needs to do better. Burien is facing challenges around gun violence and homelessness. I’ll push for more first responders, treatment programs, and housing, while holding our homelessness programs and government officials accountable. I’ll work to bring more living-wage jobs, and make Burien the best place to live, work, own a business, and raise a family. Together, we can build a community that’s safe, prosperous, and vibrant!


Endorsed by: Congressman Adam Smith, County Councilmember Dave Upthegrove, Senators Joe Nguyen and Karen Keiser, unions including Carpenters, Food & Commercial, Laborers, and neighbors across Burien.
