I am one of five children in my family. My older brother, Adam, is a DHS/HSPVA graduate and is now at the New England Conservatory. My older sister, Mia, is a DHS graduate and is attending the University of Texas at Austin. My younger sister, Ava, is a 5th grader at Rogers Middle School and my youngest brother, Joseph, is a third grader at Silvercrest Elementary School.
Every single one of my brothers and sisters, like myself, started their education in Pearland schools. My family has lived in Pearland for the past two decades. My mother is a lawyer at the VA and my father is an Attorney, as well as a former State Rep. Candidate.

Working with senior administration and by engaging the students of Pearland ISD, Mike has implemented more changes in the district than any other student in Pearland history. Mike became the youngest candidate for school board in Pearland history when he filed on February 17th, 2017.
Never before in PISD history has a student been elected to the Board of Trustees. Mike believes it is long overdue and is a great opportunity for someone who knows what is going on inside of the classroom to set district policy. There is often a disconnect between the district administration and the classroom, a gap that Mike can fill. It is essential that the Board understands how policies implemented at the top would effect each and every student.
