Biography and Background
As a 6th-generation Idahoan, my roots run deep in this great state. I grew up working on a potato farm and also for my dad’s small business. After spending 2 years as a missionary for my church, I earned a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Accounting from Brigham Young University – Provo. I’ve also earned an MBA from the University of Utah, with an emphasis in entrepreneurship.
In my work career, I’ve started and ran several of my own business. Professionally, I’m a former CPA, CFO, and consultant.
Service has always been a part of my life, whether it be in church or the community. I have spent nearly 20 years working to elect conservative leaders at the local, state and national level and being involved politically. Within the Republican Party I’ve served as Precinct Committeeman for the past 4 years and 3rd Vice Chair of the Ada County Republicans for the last 2 years.
Most importantly, I am a husband and father. I married my best friend, Karla, from high school. We love Meridian where we live with our 4 children.
My experience as a small-business owner and dedicated conservative Republican has prepared me to represent District 21 in the Legislature.
