I am a candidate for the Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education. I feel that I can bring my experience in the private sector to the board to build a diverse and collaborative environment to address the problems that face our education system.
I am a husband and the father of four wonderful children that are students at Cincinnati Public Schools.
A graduate of Walnut Hills High School and the University of Cincinnati, with a B.S. in Computer Science.
My career started in software development and information technology, currently my professional role is in strategic planning and resource management. Over the years I’ve developed many valuable skills such as how to effectively listen to people, understand the issues they face and work with them to develop the best solutions possible using the available resources. Sometimes it’s building a new computer system. Sometimes it’s altering the way people do things to make them more successful. This the kind problem solving is relevant everywhere: home, work, and school.
What I want to bring to Cincinnati Public Schools is the ability to solve problems effectively and efficiently. Today we have so many ways to share information, to see what developments have proven successful in other districts and see how to apply them to our own schools. CPS will benefit from the lessons on reducing costs, innovative solutions and problem solving that I have acquired from my business and technology experience.
