"As a community leader I have worked to build a more progressive community"
From working to enhance our quality of life through parks and programming as Chairman of the Board for Pearland Parks and Recreation to partnering with state and local organizations such as TWC (Texas Workforce Commission) and Alvin Community College to secure over $1.9M in job skills training(over 200 jobs) as a Director on the Board of the Pearland Chamber of Commerce, I am committed to mutually beneficial partnerships and the sustainable investments in both the business community and community at large.
"I am committed to creating a healthier and more inclusive community for
I have worked tirelessly to create opportunities that allow us to uphold values that contribute to a great quality of life - access to great public education, safe neighborhoods, and ultimately creating a more equitable and inclusive community. My leadership abilities are strengthened by my dedication to my faith and my family. Celebrating 16 years of marriage, my wife Monique and I have been members of the Pearland community for the last 13 years. We are active members in Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. respectively, and we attend the Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Community Church.
I cherish my relationships with my two sons, who attend public school Pearland. My responsibilities as a father and community leader are extremely important to me. My role as a parent has also taught me how to relate my love for my family to commitments that best serve the interests and needs of the community. I am confident my experience as a business professional and years of work in the community has prepared me to lead.
