I grew up in Oregon with a deep appreciation for protecting our natural spaces. As an attorney, I worked with local residents to stand up to development projects that would hurt our community. Through land-use work at Metro, I’ve been heavily involved in how we can best grow our economy and create jobs, while also preserving farmland and green spaces. I live in Beaverton with my wife, Mariah, and our two children. I believe in standing up for our shared priorities: creating opportunity and passing on our natural legacy to future generations.
