I have lived in East Multnomah County for 14 years with my wife and three children.  I teach special education math at Reynolds High School, and I have also taught composition, rhetoric, reading, academic skills and GED classes. I have coached wrestling, track, and speech and debate.


I love the communities of East Multnomah County, and I enjoy getting involved. I was appointed to the Troutdale Citizens Advisory Committee and the Troutdale Budget Committee in 2010, and I helped organize the Troutdale SummerFest for many years. Here I am with my father playing at the Troutdale Historical Society's Red Barn Concert.


I love volunteering with my family. My oldest daughter and I volunteer at the Multnomah County Animal Shelter every week.
