My wife Mary and I moved to Crestwood in 2006 from south city St. Louis. We have two children that both attended the Lindbergh School District. Our oldest is currently in graduate school and working full time in Columbia, MO and our youngest is working full time here in St. Louis.

I have been involved with the City of Crestwood in various capacities. Mayor Schlink asked me to serve on the Board of Adjustment during his term, and Mayor Roby asked me to serve on the Public Works Board. I was elected as the Chairman of the Public Works Board about three years ago. Additionally, I have been asked twice to serve on the TIF Commissions for the former mall site. I have enjoyed my time on the boards and commissions and look forward to my Aldermanic responsibilities as well.  

I am very excited about the direction that Crestwood is heading and see a lot of opportunities for the City in both the near and long term. Our community is experiencing very exciting growth right now.

Crestwood citizens of Ward 2, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or issues you would like to discuss.
