I'm a Navy veteran, a husband and most importantly a devoted father to three wonderful, unique children. I'm also a Certified Public Accountant.
During the next school year, each of my kids will be in different schools: Penny Creek Elementary, Eisenhower Middle and Cascade High. The state of the Everett Public School system is incredibly important to me as a parent, taxpayer and community member.
The things that matter most to me are:
I am a working parent and a citizen with a vested interest in the success of our schools. I'm excited at the opportunity to help ensure a bright future for our children and our community. I will prioritize the needs and interests of our students in every decision.

I was a Graduate Assistant at the University of Wisconsin for two semesters. I helped the EMBA students with accounting and statistics and lead discussion for Business 101.
It's not much, but chaperone on field trips.
I don't hold ill will against any child. I believe we need to meet kids where they are. We need to listen and be cheerleaders for all of our children to help them become strong, critical thinkers and well-adjusted community members.
I support him. I believe he truly has our kid's best interest at heart and is working very hard for our school district. Crime around our schools is unfortunate but the responsibility for that, homelessness and drugs rests with other local bodies. Our Superintendent has demonstrated that he leads by example by forgoing a raise as shown in his contract amendment included in the Consent Agenda at the May 23rd, 2023 school board meeting.
Yes, I believe unions have done a lot for the people of this country by improving working conditions, hours and wages. I used to be a member of the Teamsters Local 344 in Milwaukee.
I would absolutely support our teachers and principals instituting cell phone restrictions in their classes and schools, but I would not feel comfortable with a district level policy. Though cell phones can be distracting, cell phones help us parents feel comfortable that our kids are safe and enable our kids to ask for help any time.
