I have always been proud to be called a Brown Deer Falcon and graduate of Brown Deer High School. I've been a part of this community for most of my life, and a majority of my immediate family members still live here. I married my beautiful wife more than 10 years ago and we chose Brown Deer to raise our three small children because it is a special place.
I graduated summa cum laude from UW-Milwaukee with a double major in finance and marketing. Over the past 15 years, I have worked in the financial services industry, and I am currently a vice president and senior annuity specialist at Robert W. Baird & Co.
Many people have asked me "Why are you running?" My answer is that I have a deep passion for our community and I feel our village needs new leaders to emerge with fresh ideas to keep Brown Deer moving forward.
There have been a number of improvements throughout the village in recent years, but there is more work that needs to be done. I've attended many Village Board meetings over the past few years. I am well versed on the opportunities and challenges that we face; therefore, I can be an effective member immediately. I believe one of the top priorities for our village is to address the vacant properties and businesses to help alleviate the financial burden on our residents.
I believe my considerable financial experience will be a meaningful asset to the Village Board as we prepare future budgets. Additionally, my marketing skills will play a key role in promoting our village, school district, local businesses and community. It would be an honor and privilege to serve as your village trustee.
