I was born and raised in California. I have called Washington home for almost 13 years. This is where I met my wife, Annajean, of 11 years and are raising 3 children.
Professionally I have managed small businesses and currently work as an independent contractor in the gig economy. This gives me the flexibility to be able to help my kids in Cub Scouts and coach youth sports.
I graduated from the University of Phoenix with a Bachelors of Science in Business with a concentration in Public Administration.
My leadership and volunteer experience is in the Boy Scouts of America. I earned the rank of Eagle Scout as a young man. In the BSA I worked with a variety of people to teach and inspire youth across the country and locally. My wife and I have been Foster parents since 2012 and currently lead a support group to mentor other Foster parents.
