For Metro District 5
The Portland Metro area became my chosen home 20 years ago. Over those two decades, I’ve served on charitable and public boards, including the Portland Parks Foundation, Metro’s Nature in Neighborhoods grants committee, Oregon’s Youth Development Council and the Portland Utility Board. As your Metro Councilor, I will bring my energy and experience to ensuring that new and longtime residents feel proud choosing this area as their home.
The Leadership Our Metro Needs Right Now
I’ve enjoyed a 30-year career as an attorney handling intellectual property and business matters in the high-tech and sports product industries. I chose the metropolitan area because of a great work opportunity, our beautiful natural surroundings and the availability of suitable housing. Most recently, I am the founder of a start-up that assists first-time business buyers. I am also a business/legal consultant and educator to local businesses such as Mercy Corps Northwest and the Portland Fashion Institute.
