We moved to Lake Forest Park to enjoy the natural environment and community. I am running for city council in order to maintain Lake Forest Park as a welcoming, environmentally-friendly city.


I care deeply about our environment and am committed to maintaining our tree canopy and expanding it where it is sparse. I support prudent financial management and thoughtful community investments including sidewalks near schools. I am excited to work with the community in developing our new lakefront park and providing all residents with recreational access to Lake Washington.  As an avid transit user, I am eager to work with Sound Transit and Metro to ensure that our transit network evolves in a way that serves LFP residents. I am committed to transparent government and will work to improve community engagement.

With accelerating growth in the region, our city is at an inflection point.  I want to protect the unique character of Lake Forest Park that inspired my wife and me to raise our family here.  It’s been a wonderful experience of finding community, enjoying green spaces, Farmers Market visits, coaching basketball games, umping for Little League, and volunteering at PTA events.

 If elected, I will bring a common-sense, fiscally responsible approach to solving complex problems.  I will work to protect our tree canopy and watershed, enhance park and bike access, and add more sidewalks.  I will support more housing options through targeted zoning enhancements.

 I have significant experience at high-growth technology companies navigating change and delivering solutions with global teams.  Every day I’ll bring that same positive, action-oriented, and collaborative attitude to our Lake Forest Park community and city council. Let’s move LFP forward together!
