Bio:

 

I was raised in nearby Towamencin Township and graduated from North Penn High School. Following graduation from the University of the Arts, I moved to Wilkes-Barre to work for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Penguins Hockey Team. In 2006, I moved to Japan to work for the Hiroshima Carp Baseball Team.

 

In Japan, I met my wife, Yoshimi, and we had 3 children, Haruka, Tomoki, and Misaki. In 2012, our family made the decision to move to the United States to raise our children. As a North Penn area native, I selected to live in this area due to the ability to be close to family and the excellent school district. 5 years later, we are very happy with that decision.

 

Our family loves North Wales Borough because of true sense of community that our residents foster. Our children can walk around the neighborhood safely to visit friends, there is a great public park system, and there are fantastic community events that have allowed us to meet our neighbors. There are also a terrific bunch of individuals involved in public service committees and elected positions who do so much for the Borough. I want to be elected as Tax Collector so that I can increase my contribution to this great community.
