I have been a part of this community for 13 years and could not think of a better place to raise a family. I am an active part of this Town and it is important to me that as it grows it does so in a manner that is sustainable and representative of the small-town values that have drawn so many. I have no doubt that my unique perspective as a husband, father, aerospace professional, community advocate, and small business owner make me the best candidate for Mayor.
Born and raised in Detroit, I am very proud of the blue collar work ethic and values instilled by my parents and community. Married for 18 years, my wife (Meosha) and I have four wonderful and very active children. We enjoy traveling and the outdoors, as well as lending our services to various community causes. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology from Prairie View A&M University, a Master of Engineering in Systems Engineering from Penn State University, as well as Certifications as a Program Management Professional (PMP), Scaled Agile Framework Enterprise (SAFe) Practitioner, Apollo Root Cause Analysis Practitioner, and a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Practitioner. Having worked in the Defense and Aerospace industry for the past 20 years, I have a great deal of experience in leading large-scale projects and managing programs that serve to keep our country safe or expand our scientific capabilities. I also own two small businesses and understand firsthand some of the challenges faced in the current climate.
In addition to my personal and commercial interests, I am proud to serve as a Town of Erie Trustee, where I am charged with representing the interests of the residents and visitors in policymaking decisions.
I am excited for the future of our Town and humbly ask for your support in moving the Town of Erie forward!
