I am running for State Representative for House District 42 . It is my belief that it is time for West Central Indiana to have a leader in the Statehouse who will lead from the front, with vision for the future and the drive to get there. I am that leader.

I have lived and worked in Vigo County for the last eleven years at one of the pre-eminent engineering schools in the nation, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. As an Assistant Director for Recreational Facilities, I have had the opportunity to work with not only some of the best and brightest young minds, but the chance to manage some of the best athletic facilities at the Division III level in America. Prior to working at Rose, I was a corporate sales account executive for a minor league hockey team in Flint, Michigan, the Flint Generals. My duties included corporate sales, marketing, event management, and community relations.

I am married to Cinda, and we have two children, Katelyn and Derek. I value family, education, individual freedom and limited government as major components for success. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, PA and my Master of Arts degree from Indiana State University.

I love this country and this state. I love our freedom. I am ready and willing to do my part. If you live in district 42, I hope I can earn your vote.
