City where I live: Oregon City

Skills: I am pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, I have an associates degree in Occupational Studies. I am currently employed as a Field Service Engineer in the Semiconductor industry. I served for 5 years in the United States Navy as a submarine Sonar Technician.

3 things I will do if I win:

Icon: the word TAX being cut with a pair of scissors, and the label Cuts beneath1. Work to cut taxes for the all income earners but focusing on those making less than 140k/year.


Icon: ribbon with the stars and stripes and the label VETERAN2. I spent years in the Navy and I know from first hand experience how utterly wasteful and ineffective it is. That ineffectiveness puts  our  service  people at risk and our country at risk. I also know that these endless wars against adjectives are only acting to enflame tensions.

Icon: a medical figure holding a chart with a plus sign on it3. I would also work toward eliminating overly burdensome regulations from the healthcare market so that true competition can once again flourish and bring down costs. The federal government limits our supply of doctors, nurses, and medical supplies through frankly ludicrous laws.
