I am a family man and a person with a deeply held convictions. My wife Lindie and I have been married for 23 years and are truly partners in life. We value serving our community and have a worldwide impact thought non-profit organizations.
We have five amazing children who are true world changers. We have been dedicated to service at home in Washington State and serving for 21 years as a family in the Philippines and most recently with health relief and well drilling efforts in Kenya.
I was elected to Bothell City Council three times and have served as the Deputy Mayor and Mayor during which time the city saw the largest re-development in Washington State led by a city our size. Over $300 million of private investment was brought to our city due to the strong leadership of the council majority.
I am a real-estate investor. I started my company in 2005 and saw substantial growth through the downturn as I capitalized on opportunities and recruited trusted investors in the vision I had for growth.
I have lived in Egypt and Pakistan and have served in humanitarian efforts around the world. My heart and that of my wife is to help people who're in great need and to lead others to attain what some may think are impossible goals. My family responded within one week of a tragic earthquake in the Philippines and built on our relationship with the local government to support relief efforts. We collaborated to help build over 150 homes for people who had lost everything.
