Shortly after the reunification of West and East Germany, I was born to an American father and a German mother in Bonn on the Rhine. After living in Kirkland, WA, for a few years, our growing family moved to Yokohama, Japan, where I grew up. In 2011, we settled in Bellingham, Whatcom County, where my brother and I wrapped up high school with a year of speech and debate in a competitive national league.


After completing high school, I earned my bachelor of arts in computer science at age 20. My father and brother and I started a family business, teaching English, German, and Latin online, for which I developed the web application.

In 2016, the three of us got into real estate sales, which is a business we've enjoyed working on together. My brother has since moved to Germany, and Dad and I continue the real estate business together here.

Having grown up with native speakers of both English and German, I'm fluent in both those languages; I've also studied Japanese, since I grew up there, and Chinese, since my parents both studied it in college and it has been useful for us in our business.


From 2018 to 2020, I served as a Local Director on the Whatcom County Association of Realtors. I've also been a volunteer at Habitat for Humanity building new housing projects and active in our church including the annual Drive-In Burger Outreach.
I would love to put my cultural background and international experience to work to serve the people of Whatcom County.
