I am one of two current Council members who was born and raised in Fircrest. I moved away briefly to attend college in Montana. After receiving my degree in psychology, I moved back to the Tacoma area and married my wife, Chris. After our first daughter was born, we moved back to Fircrest. I also have a son and a second daughter. My children are ages 20, 18 and 16. My oldest daughter attends college in New York City. My son will be off to college in Montana in the fall. My youngest daughter attends Bellarmine where she is a junior and my son a senior this year. I am employed by Thurston County and work in the Juvenile Court. My wife works for a local law firm. In my spare time, I enjoy watching my children compete in their various sports. Both my daughters play soccer and my son is on a shooting team. I also enjoy visiting with friends and family. I have been having a great time being on the City Council thus far. I love the work of trying to keep Fircrest a desirable and unique place to live. My door is always open to you for questions or concerns.
