To sum up oneself in “one page or less” is a daunting task when the days of our lives, even at thirty-six years old, could fill the pages of a multi-volume book. I was born and raised in the tri-county area and my wife and I are proud to call Stony Plain our home. Through grade school, I embraced countless opportunities to be involved in our local communities and was afforded many rich experiences by the people and businesses in the area. As a youth, I was an active member of the City of Spruce Grove Youth Council and had the privilege to work alongside MLA Doug Horner as a youth delegate to the Province of Alberta. A life altering experience as a 17 year old high school student led me to begin asking how I could give back to the community that had afforded me so many rich experiences!

After high school, I began serving our community as a volunteer with the Parkland Children's Christmas Program, a committee I was privileged to chair for many years. The program itself was an amazing event that happened once a year, but it was the collaborative effort of our local businesses, schools, churches, and community members that shows how we, together, can encourage a sense of belonging. And it is that sense of belonging that is at the core of a strong community.

As I begin this new journey, know that I am in your corner! I understand that the influence of a community leader does not begin on election day and the voices of the community should continue to have influence long after the ballot boxes are packed away. I believe one of the most powerful experiences that we can have, is to be truly heard - to know that our voice matters and that it will help inform the decisions that are being made at council. Know that I am listening!

I look forward to meeting with you in the coming days, weeks, months, and years as we work together to build a community that we can be proud of.

Let's talk soon!
