I’m an educator, a dad, a grandfather, and a former police officer and that is what drives me as a Representative. My wife Jackie and our family have called Troutdale home for the last 2 decades.
I have been teaching geography and law enforcement at Mount Hood Community College since 1996. I also served as a police officer with the Portland Police Bureau for seven years where I patrolled neighborhoods on the east side of Portland.
As a legislator, I’m using the experience I have gained throughout my life to improve, reform and strengthen our communities and district.
