My wife Rachel and I live in Worthington Estates with our 2 children, Molly and Lucas. I have been a part of our community for more than 35 years. I am running for City Council to bring my skills and values to Worthington to make sure the community that I love continues to be strong for our children and for families of all backgrounds.
After graduating Thomas Worthington High School, I completed my degree in Computer Science and my MBA at The Ohio State University. Once I began my career, my wife and I returned home to Worthington to start our family. These are my roots - four generations of my family live in this area. It is important to me to make sure Worthington continues to be a great place for the young and the old.
As a software engineer with experience in large and small business, I spend my time analyzing complex problems and figuring out how to fix them – then communicating this is a way that everyone can understand. Worthington faces many challenges managing growth in a responsible way. My skills will make sure we make good decisions that maintain our character.
Rachel and I believe in living our values. I serve on the Board of the First Unitarian Universalist Church and I am a Past Board Chair. I have been engaged in our church since I was two and have been teaching Sunday school since I was sixteen. I know the importance of connecting and listening to the community. My leadership roles have taught me to set a policy, then provide guidance and accountability in order to fulfill a vision for the future. I will bring this to Worthington City Council.
