Cole is your neighbor in Prairie Village and is running to represent Ward 1 on the Prairie Village City Council. Cole is a third-generation Prairie Village resident. Cole and his three brothers were raised in the same house their mom grew up in. They walked to school at Tomahawk Elementary, played countless baseball games at Porter Park, read all the books at Corinth Library, and spent our summers at the Prairie Village pool.
After graduating from Shawnee Mission East in 2002, Cole attended the University of Kansas to major in Business Administration. With a degree in hand, he started playing professional poker and began traveling the world. He lived in Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Croatia, and Hong Kong, eventually transitioning from playing poker to trading financial markets. He has always been self-employed with an entrepreneurial bent, making a living by finding creative ways to solve complex problems.
