More than ever, we need leaders with a common-sense approach, strong resolve, and an innate sense of fairness, honesty, and responsibility. As a Renton Planning Commissioner and small business owner, my experience will help me address our community’s biggest challenges and deliver results. My priorities are to keep Renton as a prosperous city, a community of opportunity, a safe place to live, and a strong regional player.


We must ensure that Renton’s growth positively impacts each individual and family. Coming out of the pandemic, it’s paramount that we make common-sense decisions to ensure a strong economic recovery, bring in more strong businesses and high-quality jobs, reduce crime and homelessness, increase affordability, and ensure inclusion and opportunities for all Renton residents.

Education: Double Major Business and Computer Information Science; Troy University, 1996 – 2000
Occupation: Deputy Chief Technology Officer King, County, WA

As we recover from the pandemic, we need leaders who will ensure Renton comes back stronger than we were before. An active volunteer in our community, I also bring 20 years of experience as an innovator and business leader with a background in aerospace, software development, and local government.

I will prioritize policies that support our local economy, keep housing affordable and maintain our community, celebrate our beauty and diversity, and maintain safety for all -- especially seniors and other vulnerable populations.

When my wife and I moved here over 20 years ago, we specifically chose Renton because of all the opportunities this city represented to us. I still believe in the opportunity that Renton represents, and with your support, I will work every day to ensure the people of our city have the ability to thrive. Endorsed by Councilmember Ed Prince and many other local leaders and organizations.
