I was born and raised in Allyn, Washington. I married my childhood sweetheart Dinah and we have 3 beautiful daughters- Alyssa, Megan and Sarah, wonderful sons-in-law Jeff and Patrick and 4 amazing grandchildren. Community means everything to our family. We frequently work on projects together and lend a hand wherever we can. Dinah served on the North Mason school board and offers great insights into the needs our students, parents and educators are facing.
I attended North Mason High School and the Kitsap Peninsula Vocational Skill Center. Vocational skills are something every student should be able to take advantage of and graduate with a marketable skill- out the gate. If you have faith in kids to do the right thing and give them the opportunities, you will be amazed by the results. I believe it is our job to encourage them and to give them the tools they will need to succeed, along with the experiences that will help them achieve their goals. Every student has a success story in their future, lets help them uncover it.
My passion for helping our neighbors began with my parents as they brought me with them to many events, fundraisers and projects that needed people to get involved, in order to succeed. I was just a little guy, but it made quite the impression on me and at 16, I began volunteering for our local fire department. I was encouraged to respond to calls directly from school and my teachers were proud of me- even wanting updates. I won’t lie, it was a lot of work, but it was also a lot of fun. There is nothing that compares to joy you feel when you can make a difference in someone’s life. I then went on to become one of the youngest EMTs in WA. State before starting my career as a professional firefighter in my home county.
It is an honor to serve you in the Washington State Legislature. I am on the Local Government, Early Learning and Public Safety committees. In addition, I was elected to leadership as the House Republican Whip in 2019, by my peers. I enjoy advocating for ALL my constituents and have an open door and accessible phone- feel free to contact me about anything, anytime. Making a positive difference in the lives of our citizens is an amazing job and I am happy to work for you.
