I was born and raised in Ballard, the son of two social workers. Our neighbors were school teachers, welders, plumbers, electricians, and fishermen. As our city changes, we need to work together to achieve solutions that preserve our community and promote our economy.

I want to fight to make sure Seattle grows into a healthy city that works for everyone. That means preserving our rich environmental resources, completing multi-modal networks, and growing programs that provide affordable childcare, access to fresh nutritious foods, and housing for the spectrum of our city’s needs.

I want to hear from you, to build a platform that works for all of us. For the last decade, I’ve worked as a policy and constituent organizer for the City of Seattle, the Washington State Legislature, and the Alliance for Gun Responsibility. I know that the policy decisions we make in any legislative body have deeply personal impacts on our constituents. I know how to move power back to everyday people and make sure their voice is heard. That’s what I intend to do for our district.
