Biography & Background

I’m a fourth generation Idahoan. I grew up on a family farm in Marsing, and attended Marsing Schools District K-12. I am a past 4-H and FFA member. I enjoyed showing horses, raising market steers and dairy heifers. I participated in sports playing football, baseball, and basketball. I took an active role working on the farm after school, and during the summer. In addition, I partnered with my brother to rent our own farm ground where we raised feed crops.

I attended Idaho State University where I graduated with an Associates of Applied Science with a focus as Diesel Mechanic Technician. Applying the skills I learned during my higher education I held a position with a construction company operating heavy equipment and performing minor mechanizing tasks.

Following graduation I began my career as a mechanic for a construction company in Caldwell fixing equipment, and operating heavy equipment. My career advanced when I took a position as a mechanic for a national delivery company. Today I am employed by that same company in the role of feeder truck driver.

I enjoy Idaho’s outdoor recreation. Snowmobiling, hunting, sport shooting, motorcycling, road trips, the list is long. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

My wife, Savannah, and I had our first child in November of 2020. My daughter is one of many motivators to run for Idaho Governor in 2022. The three of us enjoy our three mini-Dachshunds, and one Yorkie. I look forward to meeting more Idahoans as I travel this great state.

Top 3 Issues:

1. Taxes. Individual’s financial futures are at risk now more than ever. We can’t keep giving our hard-earned money in the form of taxes to a corrupt government. People need to keep more of what they earn.
2. Education. Education has gone off the rails. Critical race theory, common core math, gender studies, sexualization of children, Marxist ideals, all horrible, and shouldn’t be allowed in Idaho schools. We need an education system rooted in conservative values. An education that has included real-life-skills that help setup kids for success out of high school. Set conservative values, set the culture.
3. Corruption, and R.I.N.O.s. Bringing to light all the corruption in Idaho politics. Informing voters of all the so-called republicans who are trying to pass legislation that doesn’t align with the party. There are to many politicians masquerading as republicans.
