My background of 20 years of military experience gives me the leadership skills needed to represent Plano as a member of City Council.
I am an experienced leader with more than 20 years of active military service. As an officer and platoon leader in the Army deployed to Afghanistan, I was in charge of base security and subsequently responsible for the safety and security of more than 500 Soldiers and local Afghan nationals. I was also responsible for managing 18 million dollars of taxpayer funded government property without incident of fraud, waste, or abuse.
These skills are absolutely critical when dealing with city budgets, managing infrastructure, and prioritizing issues according to importance. My time as an Army officer has undoubtedly prepared me to serve you on Plano City Council, and I will do so putting your needs above mine.
I am the husband to a wonderful woman, Larci, who is my rock and confidant and who I have just celebrated 20 years of marriage with. We have two beautiful children, Hannah and Braden. I am currently a middle school social studies teacher.
