I am a Denver native. My wife and I live just across the street from the beautiful Central Park. After living in separate states, commuting back and forth between Denver and Arizona, my wife accepted a job in Colorado. We decided to move to the neighborhood from the Park Hill area in August of 2016. I am also a small business owner, owning and operating Control FREQ, a home automation and systems integration company. I launched it back in 2005 and now have an office located just across the street from the Stanley Marketplace. Having weathered the storms of the economic downturns, with the help of others, I’ve been able to successfully navigate the market and keep the company prosperous. I was a founding member of the Rotary Club of Five Points Cultural District. It was there that I learned to assess the needs of the community, mobilize and address those needs. I also served in a leadership capacity for more than 14 years at Colorado Christian Fellowship in Aurora, Colorado. As the Director of Media, I was responsible for a small budget and for managing a team of volunteers, who were responsible for weekly operations of the audio and visual components of the church. While serving in this capacity, I had the opportunity to work with individuals who had experienced the recent loss of loved ones. I worked with these families to produce the media associated with the memorial services for their loved ones. Due to the limited timeline and sensitive nature of the circumstances, this required a high level of professionalism, sensitivity, and interpersonal skills.

Often people have misconceptions about individuals due to their lack of experience in interacting with people who are not like themselves. One of my greatest honors is that I’ve had the opportunity and privilege to work with and learn from a wide range of individuals from various socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. I currently serve on the board of directors for SUN, the neighborhood organization for our community. One of the areas SUN has committed to, is to bring more diversity to the neighborhood. We’ve formed a committee to look at some of the issues responsible for the lack of diversity and are working to address them. I’m looking to bring a more diverse perspective to the MCA secure a seat as District 3 Delegate.

About

Representing a wide range of experience and reasons for running, this slate of eight candidates favor removing from the development, the name that honors former Denver Mayor Benjamin F. Stapleton, a Ku Klux Klan member supported by the hate group in the 1920s. District Delegates meet monthly to advise the MCA Board, to elect new MCA Board members, and to approve or veto the budget. The MCA Board has legal authority to change the community name. Board elections will occur later this year.


These candidates include a high school honor student, a medical researcher, community organizer, lawyer, creative director for a small business, and more. Rename St*pleton for All will be campaigning full force for these candidates because we share the values of a welcoming, inclusive community, and these candidates represent a diversity of age, gender, race and ethnicity.  We are getting back to the book.


Rename St*pleton for All will be conducting a people-to-people, door-to-door, campaign to educate the community about MCA election processes and to prepare them to vote by proxy or in person at the MCA Annual meeting, November 14th at 6:30 pm at The Cube, 8371 Northfield Blvd (E. 49th Ave.).
