A guy who wants to make Saginaw better. 


I’m a husband and father who has lived in the City of Saginaw his entire life, and can trace family roots here back to the Treaty of Saginaw.

I’m not a professional politician. (My friends who are political wonks will say, “boy, that’s for sure.”) I don’t belong to a political party. I have no aspirations for what some might call “higher” political office. I’m just a guy who didn’t like the way things were being done, and was brought up to believe that if you think you can do better, stop whining and start doing. So I did. Because I want to make my City a nice place for my children to grow up in. And I can think of no “higher” political purpose than that.

I’m a member of Saginaw’s business community who has worked in the City of Saginaw for nearly my entire 34-year career … for the last 21 years as the creative director at a marketing communications firm.

New ideas and new ways of looking at things are what I do for a living. Since the days when I had hair, I have helped businesses and nonprofit organizations make themselves better ... through better communication, better business practices and better ideas. Below is the short version of my professional and public service career:
