Vice Chair, Democrats Abroad Japan; Kanto Chair

I have always been interested in national and international politics. Trump's ascendancy motivated me to take a much more active role and search out Democrats Abroad to see what I could do politically to help keep and strengthen our democracy.    

I was born and raised on a small family farm on the great plains of North Dakota. I consider myself, first a global citizen, then an American, and after that my core values are those of a progressive Democrat.
