FOUGHT FOR YOU OVERSEAS WILL FIGHT FOR YOU IN SALEM
When I came home from flying MEDEVAC helicopter missions in the Middle East in 2018 I wanted to continue to serve my community, my state, and my nation.
This office gives us the unique opportunity to fuse our community values with our shared experiences. I'm a fourth generation MIlwaukian, and I'm proud to say that we welcomed a fifth generation in my diverse family with my daughter last year.
I am running to bring balance to the legislature in a way that reflects the culture of our neighborhoods. From my work on the Concord Property Task Force to the skies over Syria, My passion for public service is in my DNA.
I have a vision of our community where everyone is valued and no one is left behind. As an Army officer I have had extensive training in emergency management, and in times like these we need someone who can separate hysteria from reality.
I met the love of my life, Jackie, while we were both working together at McGrath's Fish House in Milwaukie shortly after graduating from Oregon State University over a decade ago. With the addition of our one year old daughter, Reagan, public service is not just a passion, it is a duty, as we need to leave an Oregon that my daughter would be proud to raise my grand children in someday.
