I am the Democratic candidate for the 26th District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
Raised in Montgomery County, I'm the son of a carpenter and school bus driver.
My parents worked hard to help send me and my three siblings to college. I graduated from Widener University with a degree in business administration.
One of my passions is writing. I worked for two daily newspapers over the course of several years, where I held elected officials accountable and tried to report the facts.
Three years ago, I ran a successful campaign for Spring City Council and became one of the youngest leaders in the borough’s history – at age 28.
Since that time, I have been working on revitalization efforts with Main Street shop owners, launching the borough's first municipal website, and addressing critical needs at the wastewater treatment plant.
Professionally, I am a produce buyer for a family-owned grocery store.
