Meet Bryan

I was born in the city of Tacoma and raised in Federal Way, I’m a proud graduate of Decatur High School and attended Highline College. I even took swim lessons right here at the Fife Aquatic Center when I was in elementary school. I am proud to have called the Fife area home all of my life and to be able to serve and give back to the area that has supported me.


My core values were instilled in me by my parents.  My dad immigrated to this country, like so many do, in pursuit of the American Dream. He worked hard, believing no job was beneath him, starting out in a restaurant, as a tour guide, and put himself through school as a part-time Metro bus driver.


He loved his job and the union which stood behind him. He sought supervisory opportunities within the company, finally working his way up to an office job. He worked hard his entire career to create opportunities for me. 

My mother, whose family arrived in America in the early 1900s, is the product of a Boeing engineer and a college librarian who went the extra mile to help students and faculty achieve their dreams. Inspired by her parents’ legacy, mom showed me the value of education. She always gave back to the community and taught me the importance of lending a helping hand. She emphasized it’s always important to ask questions and to leave things a little better than you found them. 


When I first ran for Council, I wanted to ensure that our government worked better – not just for current neighbors, but for the future of Fife, as well. We needed to continue to do those things we did well, while modernizing our systems to make them more accessible and adaptable to the changing needs and times facing our community. As Deputy Mayor and Councilmember, I’ve been proud to bring innovation and practical solutions to tackle our toughest challenges. 


Over the past 10 years, I’ve championed to bring Fife City Hall into our neighborhoods. I want our municipal government to be available to you, when you need it. Your time is valuable. During my tenure, we’ve invested in new technology and other accessibility tools to make it easier for neighbors to connect with city services. We’ve increased public meetings, outreach, and engagement, and we’ve met residents in their  neighborhoods.


In order to keep up to date and serve you and your family better, I spent several years on council attending trainings from the Association of Washington Cities and have attained and Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership. 


I’ve proudly represented Fife on numerous local, regional, and state boards and commissions including: Pierce County Regional Council, Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department (alternate), Puget Sound Regional Council Economic District Development Board (alternate) and has served on others: Puget Sound Regional Council Transportation Board, Special Projects Selection Task Force - PSRCTB, Education Advisory Committee - Association of Washington Cities, Rainier Communications - Pierce County TV Board, etc.
