It has been my privilege to serve students, parents, teachers, and community members over the past 4 years! I am passionate about early childhood education and creating partnerships within the community that support and enrich the educational opportunities for all students--preschool through graduation.
I have been dedicated to improving K-12 public education, since I was a 6th grade math and science teacher during my gap years between college and medical school.
I'm a father to a 6th grade student at Pine Lake Middle School and a 3rd grade student at Discovery Elementary School.
Like you, I work 40-50 hours per week, and am committed to investing in my community through my volunteer work on the Issaquah School Board. I live in Sammamish and work as an emergency physician caring for sick and injured children at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and other Multicare facilities.
