It has been my honor and pleasure to serve the citizens of the Northwest District of Sioux Falls as YOUR City Councilor since 2016. I believe I have proven to be an informed and dedicated public servant, leading with integrity and respect, who puts the best interests of ALL citizens first.
I was raised in an east-side working class neighborhood in Sioux Falls near John Morrell (now Smithfield Foods). The son of an auto mechanic and a nurse, I learned the values of hard work and living within your means. I've taken that worth ethic and fiscally conservative mindset to City Council.
My wife Jennifer and I wouldn't raise our daughter Olivia anywhere else but Sioux Falls. The quality of life is unsurpassed here, and I will continue to work to ensure Sioux Falls remains a safe, forward-looking city with good job opportunities where hopefully our daughter and her peers will chose to stay and call home as they enter the workforce and begin to raise families of their own.
I have served as a Sioux Falls City Councilor since 2016, and would love to serve another term as YOUR City Councilor. In addition to serving as a City Councilor, I enjoy teaching Sunday school at my church and serving on various volunteer boards. In my job as a full-time Software Engineer, problem-solving is a way of life, and that skill will continue to serve me well in my service as City Councilor. That skill, my knowledge of city government, and my experience gives me a unique ability to analyze and address the challenges and opportunities our city faces.
