VASHON, WA 98070

Education: BA University of Montana
Occupation: Airline Pilot (ret)

I first soloed in an airplane almost sixty years ago.  I’ve been an avid pilot and advocate for aviation since that time accumulating nearly twenty-thousand hours of flight time in a variety of aircraft.  This time includes more than twenty-three years with Alaska Air Group, the last twelve years as a B737 Captain.

My public service experience on Vashon Island, includes eight years as a Park Commissioner for Vashon Park District, six years on the Board of Directors (five as President) of Vashon Community Care, Founder of Vashon Community Care Foundation, and I served on the boards of Vashon Forest Stewards and Voice of Vashon.

I am currently a Commissioner, King County Airport District, accepting the appointment with the passing of a former commissioner.  I am also a partner in an airplane which is based at Vashon Municipal Airport. Please help me maintain our airport as a valuable community asset.
