...that Justice be established, public Order maintained, and Liberty perpetuated; WE, the People of the State of Indiana, grateful to ALMIGHTY GOD for the free exercise of the right to choose our own form of government, do ordain this Constitution.


Let's Make The Difference


    Running for public office is not something I've ever aspired to do. But over the past several years, I've had growing concerns over the erosion of our fundamental rights guaranteed by our Constitution.  Some of our elected officials seem to be ignoring the value of EVERY human life, from conception to natural death, all who were created in the image of God. Free speech, medical freedom, freedom to assemble, parental rights, and the 2nd amendment are in grave danger, and in some cases have already been violated.

    These are some of the reasons why I am compelled to run for State Representative in District 79.  We need a grassroots effort to turn this tidal wave of government overreach and negligence.  Please get informed on your candidates, and make your voice heard during the primary and general elections by casting your vote.  Our future depends on it.

    You can count on me to stand against the status quo.

    Where I Come From......

    I grew up on a small farm in Wells County, where I learned the value of hard work and responsibility.  My parents influenced my world view from a biblical perspective, which later became the catalyst for my faith in God.  My wife Jennifer and I both graduated from Southern Wells High School and have been married 29 years.  We still live in Wells County and have 8 children.  We enjoy traveling and getting our family together as often as possible. 

    I spent many years working in the manufacturing field as a machinist and maintenance technician.  I attended Ivy Tech for Industrial Studies and later attended the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy.  For the last 17 years I've been involved in law enforcement as a police officer.  This has given me a unique perspective on how legislation affects our way of life and the difficulties facing our communities.

    Over the past few years, I been thinking about how the decisions that are being made at the local, state and federal levels will be affecting generations to come.  I considered how I could be part of the solution instead of just being disgruntled.  As I started looking into how I might get involved, I was approached about running for state representative.  After much thought and prayer, I believe this to be my duty.  I want my children and grandchildren to experience the same freedoms I've enjoyed.

    Right To Bear Arms

    A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    I think that sums it up.

    Individual Liberties

    This past year, we've experienced unprecedented restrictions on our freedoms that hurt our economy, our ability to see family members, worship as we choose, and many others.   I believe government should be limited and no one official should hold our liberties in their hands.

    Protecting life is essential and  non-negotiable.

    Election Reform

    Our election process needs an integrity overhaul.  There were too many discrepancies with our last election, one of our most sacred rights and duties.  Everyone needs to be confident their voices are being heard on election day.


    Medical Freedom

    Our government should not be dictating how, when, where and with what medical interventions we should have access to when seeking treatment for illnesses and injuries.


    Freedom of Religion

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.....even in a "pandemic".  Our spiritual health is as important as our physical health.



    I will stand up against the federal government's agenda to “fundamentally change America”.


    I will work to reduce Indiana's dependence on federal government funding so we can be free to make decisions that are best for Indiana.


    I will constantly work to reduce and eliminate unnecessary taxes by demanding fiscal responsibility and trimming budget spending waste. I believe the more money you keep, the better our economy will prosper.


    I will always uphold your 2nd amendment “right to bear arms”.  I believe unsecured "Gun Free Zones" provide the perfect opportunity for criminals to prey on the innocent and unarmed.


    I will fight to end ALL abortions in Indiana. I am 100% Pro-Life, both for pregnant mother's and unborn children. I will work for providing access to better options, services, and education for pregnant mothers.


    I believe the role of government does not include making your medical decisions. I will fight to protect your right to choose what medical interventions, if any, you choose for you and your family.


    I believe there are many unanswered questions regarding the fairness and security of our elections. I will work to put more safeguards in our election process. Fair elections are paramount for maintaining a government of “We The People”.


    I will always protect our religious rights. I believe private businesses should never be forced to support ideals contrary to their beliefs.


    I believe in the exercise of free speech, and that this right is being severely violated using the guise of “misinformation”. I will stand up against the smothering of your voices.


    I believe that tyrannical mandates and lock downs are unconstitutional, and I will always fight to protect your rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.


    I believe small government and less regulation are best for a thriving and free society.


    I believe in school choice, and will work for solutions where state dollars follow your children to the school you choose.
