(425) 487-5200

Education: Bachelor of Science in Construction Management, University of Washington
Occupation: Founder & Owner, Sierra Construction Company; US Air Force Pilot

Having lived in the same house on Hollywood Hill for 35 years, where Kim, my wife of 40 years, and I raised two daughters, I bring an unbiased and independent voice to WF&R. I am not beholden to any special interests, labor organizations or campaign contributors. I only represent my neighbors: the citizens of Woodinville.

This election is about maintaining independent control of your fire district.  As a local business owner, I ask you to help me continue to bring fiscally sound management to the district which provides the latest in fire equipment and maintains the excellent level of service we all enjoy, not simply to be a spokesperson for the employees’ bargaining group.

Endorsed by:  Mike Millman – Woodinville City Council, retired Everett firefighter;  Derek van Veen - Woodinville Fire Commissioner;  Jim Dorney – Previous Woodinville Fire Commissioner, Retired Bellevue Fire Battalion Chief;  Elaine Cook – Previous Woodinville Mayor.

Our community deserves a Commissioner with Transparency, Integrity and Leadership while being fiscally responsible to the taxpayers.  I spent 40 years in the fire service, rising from Firefighter/Paramedic to Fire Chief, and have extensive knowledge regarding the day-to-day operations of a Fire District and its responsibility to the public.


I started two 501(c)(3) nonprofits to provide emergency housing for families displaced due to fire, a backpack program for kids who needed school supplies, scholarships for young adults, and holiday meals, and have received local and national awards for my work ethic and leadership skills.


My wife and I have lived in the community for 24 years and raised our two children here.  I will work hard to ensure our Fire District operates efficiently and effectively, always keeping the best interests of our community as the primary goal.  I would be honored to earn your vote and serve our Fire District.
