I am a citizen like you, not a politician. I value honesty, dependability, and integrity. I will bring a fresh perspective and be your voice in Olympia. I live in Arbor Heights, at the very southern end of West Seattle, with my fiancée Nora. I am actively involved in grassroots politics, fighting for individual liberty, citizen's rights, and fiscal responsibility in all levels of government. I am employed at a local tech startup, Igneous Systems. In 2013, I ran for Seattle port commissioner. Now I'm running for state house in Washington's 34th district, which includes West Seattle, Burien, Vashon, and Maury Island.
I've lived in Washington State for most of my life, in Bellevue up until I was 6 years old, followed by Mukilteo from age 12 until I left for college at 18. I graduated from Washington State University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering. I volunteer as a referee at Washington FIRST Robotics, a team-based robotics contest serving your students. I have also served as an industry mentor for WSU students. I am an Eagle Scout and enjoy spending time outdoors in our beautiful state.
