I’m proud to represent a beautiful slice of Madison’s East Side: Eastmorland, Hiestand Park, Rolling Meadows, Elvehjem, and East Buckeye neighborhoods.
I’m here to give back to my community—and to work for a Dane County in which everyone can thrive. To make that a reality, we need to address deep, long-standing disparities and establish true racial and economic justice. We also need to take action locally on climate change so we can deliver a safe environment and clean water, soil, and air to our children and our children’s children.
These are big challenges, but I believe we can meet them through bold, inclusive, and collaborative action. I promise to do my part, and I look forward to hearing from you.
I’ve lived on Madison’s East Side since 2005. Currently, I live in Elvehjem with my wife (an MMSD elementary school teacher), two children, and an old adopted dog. I work in healthcare technology and I serve on the Elvehjem Neighborhood Association Board of Directors. My past community service includes a term as Chair of the East Side Progressives action team and several years on the Steering Committee for the Wisconsin AIDS Ride. Past professional experience includes a few years as a barista, a stint as a freeform alternative DJ, and research on endangered plant species.
As for hobbies, I lift weights, read, ride my bicycle (for three of our four Wisconsin seasons), cook excellent meals on occasion, and enjoy lots of time (and a little bit of success) in my garden.
