Born in Quakertown, I grew up in Richland Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania on land that was part of my grandfather's farm. I graduated from Quakertown Community High School where I was a student government leader and helped form Student Aid for the Environment.

After graduating from DeSales University with a B.A. in Political Science I served on the Richland Planning Commission where I helped develop the township's first comprehensive plan. Soon after I moved to Washington, D.C. to cover politics and offer analysis as a senior staff writer for the National Journal.

After seven years in journalism I accepted a position at Wal-Mart Watch, a national organization dedicated to reforming Wal-Mart's business model. I identified breaking news and created rapid response content for its blog. In 2009 I earned a certificate in labor relations from Cornell University.

My love of Pennsylvania and desire to fight for her working families brought me back to the 145th District where I have lived for the past eight years. Currently I am an elected Democratic Committeeman in Richland Township as well as a candidate for state representative..

Please vote for me in the Democratic primary May 20 and let me serve you in Harrisburg.

Thank you.   

Vote Tuesday, May 20
