Meet the Candidate
Running For:City Council
Political Affiliation:Non-partisan election, registered Republican
Education:Bachelors (Economics, International Relations). Masters (Accounting)
I live in South Scottsdale within walking distance of Old Town. That’s where my wife, Farrah, and I are raising our twin boys, Barron and Monroe.
I grew up in North Scottsdale where I now work as a Certified Public Accountant for one of the most prestigious accounting firms in Arizona.
In 2003, I graduated from Chaparral High School where I was an all-state athlete. I earned degrees from Boston University in economics and international relations, and a Master’s Degree in accounting from the University of Massachusetts.
Until recently, I was a commissioner on the city’s Planning Commission. I also served as chairman of the Transportation Commission and chairman of the Building Advisory Board of Appeals.
In 2018 and 2020, I was elected Treasurer of the Legislative District 23 Republicans, where I also serve as a State Committeeman.
I graduated from the Scottsdale Leadership Program (Class 28) in 2014.
I am running for the City Council because I believe the council should be more responsive to residents – and I also think our city government can be more efficient for taxpayers.
