Born in Manhattan and raised in Three Forks, I am the fourth generation of my family to grow up in House District 69. After graduating from Three Forks High School, I worked for Kanta Products and then became a carpenter. The impacts of the 2008 recession on the construction industry allowed me to change careers and dedicate my life to public service. Since 2010 I have lived in Manhattan with my wife Callie and our two children, where I served my community as a Sergeant with the Manhattan Police Department.
I’ve been asked why I want to be your legislator. The people in this district make our home a special place—neighbors I’ve gotten to know and serve by keeping our communities safe, coaching a basketball team, or just having coffee with our local ranchers and farmers.
Right now, the people of HD 69 are not well-served by legislators who have lost sight of what matters to Montanans. Instead, many of our elected representatives are focusing on partisan issues driven by national political agendas. Instead, we need common-sense legislation born from our communities and crafted by leaders who listen to those they serve.
I want to work for you and find Montana solutions for Montana issues.
