IMG_0718(1)I’m finishing my first-term State Representative. I ran for office two years ago because West Central Indiana needed a legislator willing and able to lead, with a vision for the future and the drive to get there. I am proud of the work we have accomplished in the past two years to energize Indiana. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to better our state and promote prosperity for all Hoosiers.

I am married to Cinda and we have two children, Katelyn and Derek. I value family, education, individual freedom and limited government as major ingredients for success.

I have lived and worked in Vigo County for the last thirteen years at one of the pre-eminent engineering schools in the nation, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. As a Special Projects Gift Officer in the Development Office, 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. 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 and to serve another two years in office. If you live in district 42, I hope I can earn your vote and no one will outwork me. Thank you.
