Selection Committee members:

Thank you for the opportunity to be a candidate for the position of Director of Field Service of the Chief Seattle Council.  I am extremely excited to learn more about this opportunity to serve as DFS and I have the full support of my wife Natasha, and my family.


Throughout my career with the Boy Scouts of America, I have been preparing myself for the opportunity to serve in a leadership position for one of America’s top Boy Scout Councils.  I am confident that I have the skills and desired attributes necessary to lead the Chief Seattle Council to new levels of success and excellence.


I developed this website to give you a chance to get to know me better before we meet.


I look forward to meeting you to further express my enthusiasm and desire to be selected to serve as your Director of Field Service.
