I grew up in a small town in Eastern Washington. I became a Volunteer Fire Fighter in high school and later an EMT. I started working for the company I now own just after High School. My wife and I met in Eastern Washington and have been married for almost 18 years. We have two great kids that attend Carnation Elementary and Tolt Middle School. They both participate in sports and other local activities. I help coach my son’s recreational soccer team for both indoor and outdoor. We are a busy family.

We moved to Carnation in 2007 from Gig Harbor. After looking all over the valley, for several months, we fell in love with Carnation and knew that this was where we wanted to raise our kids.

It is important to me that we keep this sense of community. We need to make sure that our city money is being spent wisely. We need to prioritize our spending and continue to make our city a better place to live and enjoy.
