Your Councilman 

I was raised by an Army officer and English teacher who instilled in me a passion for public service. I'm a product of Prince George's County public elementary and middle schools and a graduate of DeMatha Catholic High School. I received a B.A. from Loyola University Maryland in 2012.

For over 15 years, I have been active with non-profits supporting seniors, veterans, and children and adults with disabilities. I have worked with city committees addressing housing, environmental initiatives, and public outreach. 

My priorities on the city council are to fight to protect local green space, keep a balanced city budget, maintain top-notch core services, and work to maintain a stable tax rate.

Working for You

I’m a lifelong resident, a longtime volunteer with dozens of local civic groups, and have served on the Bowie City Council since 2015 representing the residents of District 1.

I'm committed to continuing to improve core city functions, deliver proactive constituent services, and listen to residents on matters that impact their quality of life.
