Education: PhD in Social Psychology from the University of Washington
Occupation: Community Technology Researcher and Organizer, President of Third Place Technologies

It has been my privilege to serve as a Town Councilmember for the Town of Skykomish the past four years, and I seek your support in serving for another four. As a portal to the Cascade Mountains in the Pacific Northwest, the Town plays a unique role in not only supporting the needs of our local community, but also taking care of our surrounding environment and welcoming visitors to our beautiful region. As your Councilmember, my priorities are to promote a high quality of life for our citizens through improved physical and social infrastructure, balancing our needs for economic growth with our authenticity as a historic mountain town. My near-term priorities include improved access to broadband, emergency preparedness, affordable housing, and community venues and events. Most importantly, my role as an experienced project manager and community organizer is to help this community articulate and meet its own goals.
