My job entails: Oversees all district office operations for Council District Nine, including the managing of all district staff and constituent services. 

What most excites me about my work is: Helping to bring resources and services to the community.

In the past, I have worked with: Hillary Clinton; Maxine Waters; State Senator Edward Vincent

My all-time role model is my mother because she was a single parent raising two kids on her own. Despite the challenges she faced, she did everything she could to provide for us even when she had to go without herself.

The best advice I’d give to my younger self is: What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.

My favorite book of all time is: The Autobiography of Malcolm X

The three things I can’t live without are: My faith in God, my wife and kids.
