Motivation for seeking an FCCSA Board position:
As a former first responder who was raised in the First Colony area, I have a career background that took me from medical emergencies to the realm of high technology. Following my years of service, I traded my stethoscope and rescue gear for a career spanning 12 years in the high-tech sector, with stints at both Dell in Round Rock and HP in Houston. During this time, my wife Cori and I returned to Houston after the birth of our children, Claire, and Jack. As Claire approached Kindergarten age, we made the choice to settle in the First Colony area, driven by our desire to raise our kids in a diverse and nurturing environment—a decision profoundly reminiscent of my own impactful childhood experiences.
Shortly after purchasing our residence in Lake Colony, I decided to become actively involved in the community. I applied to be a neighborhood representative, motivated by a genuine desire to assist my fellow residents, and gain deeper insights into the workings of the Association. My commitment to community service shone through as I served as a neighborhood representative for five years, contributed to the First Colony Communication Committee for four years, participated in the CMP committee in 2012, and now concluding my first full term on the Board of Directors. To allocate more time for my family and the Association, I recently stepped down from positions on Missouri City’s Parks Board and the City of Missouri City’s Board of Adjustments and I remain dedicated to seeking reelection for another term on the FCCSA Board.
I seek to maintain the momentum of achievements that I believe the board and staff have collectively worked toward over the past 3 years. These accomplishments include revitalizing the landscape committee, installing shade structures over playgrounds, enhancing the aesthetics of major thoroughfares, cultivating a robust relationship with Missouri City comparable to that with Sugar Land, introducing the FCCSA app, and applying lessons learned from challenges such as winter storm Uri and the post-Covid hyperinflation. Drawing from over two decades of experience, I aim to continue providing valuable insights on negotiations, market trends, and bidding practices.
My enthusiasm for the prospect of another term on the First Colony Board is evident in my commitment to ensuring that First Colony remains a source of pride for all its residents. I envision the next significant step as updating the community guidelines to align more closely with current market trends, without sacrificing the cherished First Colony ambiance.
