A lifelong Cincinnatian that’s trying to tap the potential of our great city and its most valuable assets; the people. We’re so much stronger together, working in the same direction, with input from all sides. I analyze commercial real estate by day and struggle to renovate historic buildings by night. Look for me at a local bar with beer in hand and an open mind.

I am a Cincinnati native with deep roots in the Queen City going back generations. I have now lived in Over the Rhine for over a decade, first on Klotter Ave. and currently on Race St. Long walks and bike rides around the neighborhood have given me a real passion for urbanism and a belief that the city's past as a dense, walkable urban center will be the key to its economic competitiveness in the future.
