I have lived in the Woodinville area with my wife and children for 15 years, and have volunteered with Hollywood Hill, Sunrise, and Leota schools over the last 6 years.  The empty position on the Woodinville Fire & Rescue Commission has given me the opportunity to give back more to the community and I am happy to volunteer for this role.  My private-sector experience at Microsoft and as a small-business owner gives me insights on collaboration, negotiation, and budget management, which are well suited to this role.  As of August 1, I have taken Position 1 in an interim role, and I hope to continue this role in 2018 as the duly elected Commissioner.  I will take all issues that come before the Woodinville Fire & Rescue Commission seriously and give them the responsible, non-partisan consideration they deserve.
