BOWIE CITY COUNCIL - DISTRICT 1

Your Councilman 


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


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 senior housing, development, environmental initiatives, and public outreach. 


In my four years on the city council, I attended every council and stakeholders meeting and held over twenty community meetings and town halls. I consistently stood up to developers and advocated for the protection of local green space. ​I consistently voted to balance our city budget with a focus on core services and without a tax rate increase.
