My family first moved to Mercer Island 40 years ago, attracted by the quiet, safe and beautiful neighborhoods, the best schools in the state, and the friendly, welcoming people. I attended South Mercer Junior High and MIHS class of ’86. I went on to earn a degree in Architecture and study Computer Science at the University of Virginia. I earned my MBA, mid-career, from the UW.
I have worked in the information technology industry for 30 years, at Fortune 500 software firm, a mid-size consulting firm, a small startup, and for the past 4 years at the IT department for the City of Seattle.
My wife and I have lived on the south end since we were married in 1993. We have raised two children through Mercer Island schools. They are both in their 20’s.
I am in my second term serving on the Mercer Island Planning Commission and find public service to be very challenging and rewarding! I have volunteered with the school band and chess club and helped with our covid response by making masks. I enjoy running, biking, hiking, opera, theater, chess, and role-playing games.
