Mac decided to run for office because he says “there hasn’t been a viable alternative to the Democratic candidates in the last decade.”
Mac says he is an Independent “because neither party adequately represents the voters of the 34th District. I fundamentally believe that it’s better to create value than to deplete it.”
Mac says his number one priority is to support small businesses and subsequently the creation of jobs to bring in revenue that supports the social and environmental programs that he feels are very important for society.

Mac was born into a military family, moving around the United States and finally settling in the Seattle area. He graduated from Federal Way High School in 1982.
He then spent ten years in the Navy traveling all over the world learning about different cultures and the importance of diversity. He was honorably discharged in 1995.
After his Navy career, Mac worked for a local business starting at an entry level position sweeping floors and working his way to up to Operations Manager, reporting directly to the president of the business.
During this time Mac completed his BS in business from Chapman University and then earned a masters in business administration from the executive program at the University of Washington.
Mac currently owns and operates the Triangle Pub located where West Seattle meets White Center. He is involved in local community groups focusing on improving the quality of life in his community as well as the 34th District.
On a more personal note, Mac is an avid Seattle Seahawk fan and season ticket holder. He loves to hike and has climbed and reached the summit of Mt. Rainier. Mac loves cooking and serving customers at his establishment, and is looking forward to serving the people of the 34th District as well.Facebook Twitter Subscribe
