The importance of equity is clear in our district, but recent budget constraints provide ongoing challenges to address disparities. I am committed to supporting community voices in the decision-making process, to ensure we have fiscal stability and support the broad range of needs among students. As a parent of a child in the district, I have seen schools face incredible challenges over the last few years. As we move forward, it will be important to develop a strategic plan to help guide prioritization. 


I have previous experience as a teacher, in evaluation and for the last ten years have worked in health care administration; including roles in advocacy, strategy and leadership. In our community, I have been involved in the PTA. I will provide leadership that supports community building, transparency and prioritizes equity for students, families, and schools.

I believe in the power of a diverse and inclusive school environment. As an involved father, PTSA treasurer, and person of color, I will infuse a fresh perspective into the School Board, elevate the voices of those who are underrepresented, and champion change by challenging the presence of hand-picked candidates or favoritism within the board. I'll prioritize educational equity, strengthen community engagement, and promote student growth.

My history of leadership roles in my career has honed my adeptness in problem-solving and uniting teams. I'll dedicate myself to crafting policies that boost academic achievement and prioritize our students' well-being. My profession has also given me the ability to meticulously scrutinize budgets and decipher complex government regulations.

Residing in Shoreline for nine years with my wife and second-grader, I am wholeheartedly committed to enhancing fiscal transparency and decision-making to safeguard our students' future. Thank you. Endorsed by 32nd LD Democrats
