Age: 43.

Residence: Falmouth.

Education: BA, St. Mary's College; various certifications in specialized fitness.

Occupation: Musician and medical exercise specialist.

Elected offices/civic activities: Executive board member, Rappahannock Area Alliance of Health and Wellness Professionals; member, Stafford Democratic Committee.

Family: Married; two children.

Why should the voters elect you?

"The current Stafford County government is content to let the taxpayer foot the bills for schools, roads, police, fire and rescue, parks, water and sewer, and other county services, while the developers reap the profits from their new homes being built by the hundreds. I care about the quality of our life. I care about quality education, time spent in traffic, the ability to earn a decent wage, the amount of real estate tax we pay, the future value of our property and the preservation of historic, natural and agricultural resources. I care about managing growth."

What would you like voters to know about you?

"I have 20 years of experience in business management, and I am an internationally acclaimed concert guitarist, medical exercise specialist and a 'concerned citizen'--not a professional politician."
