Elected Experience: I have been a Democratic PCO for 4 years.
Other Professional Experience: I have been a software testing engineer for 24 years, and I am currently working in the aerospace industry.
Education: I graduated with honors from the University of San Francisco with a degree in English.
Community Service: I volunteer for habitat restoration along salmon-bearing streams, urban clean-up, projects to provide food and shelter for the homeless and proudly teach elementary school students math and science. When a young person begins to see a future for themselves as an engineer or a scientist, I encourage them to strive for that goal.
Statement: Working people of the 31st district need tax relief, jobs, and high quality schools. We need policies to help families and small businesses thrive. It’s time to close tax loopholes, reform the B&O tax, and start a State Bank. I firmly believe that access to high quality, affordable health care is a civil right.
Olympia is controlled by the special interests; that’s why I am accepting contributions only from individuals, not from corporations, PACs, political parties, or unions. Instead of protecting big money interests, I will represent the people and fight for equal rights and create opportunity for all.
