I have worked as an executive in the oil and gas industry for nearly 20-years. As such, I have extensive experience in procurement, transportation, operations, infrastructure improvement, and finance – all of which uniquely qualify me for Richardson City Council. As a U.S. Army Flight Officer for nearly 8-years, I was proud to serve my country. During that time, I was presented the Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal and National Defense Service Medal, while on active duty in both the Afghanistan and Iraqi Wars.
My wife, Amy, and I have lived in Richardson for nearly 10-years. We have raised four children here – Luke (21), Ian (19) and our identical twins Rachel and Roxanne (15). While we’ve lived in multiple places across the country, Richardson immediately became our favorite place and we knew it would be our forever home.
The decision has been a good one for us and our children. Because of the exemplary schools, all four children worked hard to be involved in the National Honor Society, and have taken active roles in other programs, like the Young Men’s Service League, the Heritage Farmstead and the North Texas Food Bank.
Amy is a part-time/substitute educator across multiple elementary, middle, and high-school campuses. Amy was recently awarded the PTA Lifetime Achievement Award from Aldridge Elementary School – a significant achievement that I’m very proud of. Amy is extremely passionate about education and service to her own children, and all others across the Richardson community.
As a family, we are devoted to Richardson and to giving back. We look forward to being able to do even more, when I am elected a city councilmember.
