First and foremost, I am a family man. I have been married to my wife, Rumana, for over 20 years. We are blessed to have two wonderful daughters. My priority in life is to be the best husband and father to these three remarkable women God has so graciously put in my life.
After my family, I am a business person. By profession, I am a certified public accountant. I am a partner in one of Houston’s top 25 accounting firms, and responsible for growing the firm’s business. Not only do I help to grow my firm’s business, but I also look at helping my clients grow their businesses, which in turn helps their communities.
I am also a member of a great district. I grew up in the Missouri City/Sugar Land/Stafford area. I attended Blue Ridge Elementary, Quail Valley Middle School and John Foster Dulles High School. I was able to take the lessons I learned from this area and obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from The University of Texas at Austin.
My roots are in Fort Bend. I am a proud member and contributor to the community that has given me so much. I have served tirelessly by dedicating time to causes near and dear to my heart. As a Board Member & Treasurer on the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, I worked closely with small businesses to ensure they had the most prudent growth strategies. I have also served on AccessHealth (Board Member), Cullinan Park Conservancy Board (Board Member), Ridge Point Orchestra Booster Association (Treasurer), and Fort Bend Republican Party (Treasurer). Most recently, I was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott to the One Call Commission Board which has allowed me to serve at the State level.
The first question I am asked is “Why are you running?” The simple answer is to give back.
I was raised in this area and was able to take the opportunities presented to me and capitalize on them. I plan to take my experiences and work to bring opportunities to District 27. I want to bring a perspective of knowing the area since childhood to our House seat, and to use my experiences in growing a business, hiring people, and working with others to build our District 27 House seat.
