“My goal is to make Duluth a desirable place to live while attracting and retaining the next generation of young people."

I grew up in Duluth and have lived in the city since 2004. I am a proud graduate of Duluth High School. I regularly attend Mount Carmel Missionary Baptist Church. Duluth is my home and the community in which those that I love have chosen to call home. Like you, I’ve chosen to invest in the future of Duluth.
I have had a long-standing personal commitment to the people of Gwinnett County and specifically the City of Duluth. For the past decade, my passion has been serving our community through volunteerism and as a member of the Duluth Urban Redevelopment Authority, the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Citizen’s Budget Review Advisory Committee. 

Duluth is poised to become a city of the future and I will work to bring desirable housing and urban amenities to complement our city’s southern charm.
