I have been represented the residents of the Glendale, Poplar Grove, and Fairpark neighborhoods on the Salt Lake City Council since 2016 after serving on the Poplar Grove Community Council the previous 6 years.

In the next four years I plan to keep working for affordability in housing and transportation within Salt Lake City as the foundation for our future growth and the means to improve air quality. I currently serve on the Utah State Commission on Housing Affordability where we are working on affordable housing recommendations for the state. We also have more to do to maintain our parks and the Jordan River, improve public safety on the Westside and continue to work towards our city goal of becoming an “net-zero” city with 100% renewable energy by 2030.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have spent 20 years working with issues of homelessness, mental health and addiction in both Utah and Maine. I have worked for social justice throughout my career and I view city council service as an extension of this effort. My wife Clarisa and I have two children and love being part of, and working to improve, our neighborhood.
