I have lived in the Puget Sound region my entire life, where I have commuted via bus, ferry, car, and foot. In 2020, my partner and I moved to Kirkland in order for us to walk and bike to work. Because of that, we are a one-car household which is proof of the benefits of transportation-oriented development.
With my position on the Commission, I hope to make it possible for others to use alternative forms of transportation such as walking, biking, and busing on their commutes by improving their reliability, safety, and convenience. My life has been greatly improved by the recent infrastructure changes and I hope to provide a long-term, forward thinking perspective.
I graduated from the University of Washington in 2020 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and now work as a Vehicle Controls Engineer at Kenworth.
