I was born and raised in South Everett and moved to Lynnwood in 2017 with my wife to start a family. I am currently a firefighter and EMT for South King Fire & Rescue in Federal Way and it’s the values I’ve learned doing this job that has instilled in me a strong desire to serve the community I have chosen to live in. I know that with my 12 years of experience in the fire service I will be able to help move South County Fire in a direction the taxpayers deserve. I am devoted to being the best steward of our tax dollars when it comes to fire and EMS and will be dedicated to finding ways to streamline services while increasing staff on the streets. The residents who live within the boundaries of South County Fire has a vested interest in a fire department that operates smoothly and efficiently. One that focuses on having boots on the ground to mitigate any emergency. I hope to represent those residents and their interests, which is why I am running for South County Fire Commissioner Position 2.
