I am a proud immigrant, privileged to have lived in Medina for the past twelve years with my wife and two children. Medina has been an amazingly welcoming city for my family, and I am now ready and eager to give back to our great community.


Prudent finances are essential for the city’s health and ours requires some creative intervention. As your city councilmember, I plan to utilize my 30+ years of international business experience to work towards thoughtful and creative decisions to maintain what makes Medina special.


I’m not a politician, but a business owner who has had experience wearing multiple hats and filling different roles to solve myriad problems. I don’t have all the answers, but I promise to listen to all citizens with respect and make decisions based on what is best for Medina. I will be honored to earn your vote. Please visit:

Like many of you, Medina is where we have chosen to raise our family. I want to maintain a strong, safe and healthy Medina for current and future generations. As your Councilmember, I’ll push to strengthen fiscal responsibility to deliver the small-town public services we value, maintain a safe and secure community, and preserve our beach and parks, so you can continue to enjoy the character and charm that makes Medina so special.


As a Microsoft veteran, I have 20+ years of global experience in managing multi-million-dollar budgets, leading teams, and delivering real-world solutions. I’m known for bringing together different perspectives and driving transparent, strategic, outcomes-based approaches. I will bring similar rigor and discipline to our Council.


I’m grateful for endorsements from elected officials, community and business leaders, the National Women’s Caucus, and neighbors across Medina. It will be my privilege to serve our community. Thank you for your support!
