I was born in Indiana and grew up in Hawaii.  As the son of two veterans I have lived in several locations around America. However,  my roots are here on Iowa soil. I am a loving son, committed partner, a proud uncle, and a local area volunteer.

I have spent over four years honing my skills as a leader within my current job. I take full advantage of any leadership and development opportunities offered to me by organizing, implementing, and developing projects within my work. 

Besides playing with my DoubleDoodle (Goldendoolde/ Labradoodle mix) Berni, the real star of my campaign, I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, friendly debates, board games, canvassing, and organizing for political parties.

I am most impassioned when it comes to fighting for justice and equality. I have so much faith not only for Iowa but for the entire country. The cultural diversity we have here brings so much promise. I am ready and excited to see the unlocked potential we have in our communities amongst our diverse working class who have been effectively kept from thriving, where they have only been surviving this whole time.

Our country and community will only be as strong as our working class is allowed.
