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.

Update on COVID-19 shots for young children
Thursday, June 23, 2022
Earlier this week, the news that so many parents have been waiting for arrived: children under 5 can now be vaccinated for COVID-19!
As of now, Public Health Madison Dane County has experienced such high demand that all pediatric doses currently on hand have been claimed. However, you can check with your child’s pediatrician or check out vaccines.gov for availability with other providers.
In addition, Public Health has ordered more doses and will add appointments as soon as possible. You can check publichealthmdc.com/vax early next week for updated appointment availability.
