Why Naperville City Council

We love Naperville! We have lived here for 18 years. Our twins are freshmen at Naperville North High School. As we look to their future – and for all residents – we want a healthy, safe Naperville for everyone to call “home”. This vision inspires me and is why Naperville City Council is where I wish to serve next.

Napervillians are people who really roll up their sleeves and get involved. I have served in our City for more than 15 years as an appointed volunteer on multiple boards and commissions, including:

My non-profit board service includes:

  • Naperville United Way (past president)
  • KidsMatter
  • Naperville Heritage Society (past Treasurer)
  • “Shark” (Advisory Board), Naperville School District 203 Business INCubator

My business and service experience to Naperville have prepared me well to serve as your representative on Naperville City Council.

  1. We must do all we can to reduce the taxpayer’s burden. As a fiscal conservative, I will rein in City spending to reduce the tax levy, but will never compromise public safety.
  2. Our growing community needs to move forward with development opportunities when they are both economically advantageous to Naperville and respectful of our neighborhoods and sense of community.
  3. Transparency in government is critical to build trust and inform residents. I strongly advocate for technology resources which strengthen communication between the City and our stakeholders.


Our family has been living in Naperville for 18 years. Our children were born and raised here and we love this City!

I currently serve as an officer on the City of Naperville Planning and Zoning Commission. For more than 15 years, I have been a volunteer on a variety of appointed City Commissions, including as a past Chairman of the City’s Financial Advisory Board, as a SECA Commissioner, and as a Library Trustee.

One of the highlights of my week is leading our twins’ youth group, where I will be serving in my 13th year, at Good Shepherd Church here in Naperville.

Other Volunteer Service:

  • “Shark” (Advisory Board), Naperville School District 203 Business INCubator
  • Past President, Naperville United Way
  • Treasurer and Finance Committee Chairman, Naperville Heritage Society Board (Naper Settlement)
  • Trustee, KidsMatter
  • Advisory Board, West Suburban Angels
  • Multiple stints helping at Ribfest and the Last Fling

I co-own a Naperville-based business, Intentional Impact, LLC, where I am a leadership and business advisory consultant. I hold an undergraduate degree in French and German literature, with a master’s degree in French political science, economics and history.

My wife Amanda and I have been married for nearly 28 years, and we have 14 year old twins who are freshmen at Naperville North High School. They are very active with their club lacrosse teams, and both plan to play lacrosse for Naperville North. Our daughter plays field hockey at Naperville North and on her club field hockey team, and our son also plans to wrestle for Naperville North.
