I live with my wife, Debby, in rural Polk County. As a software engineer for a manufacturing company, I'm very much in touch with the heart beat of Oregon's economy. I think it's a positive thing that when the Legislature shuts down for the session, I go back to work, elbow to elbow with my fellow Oregonians. I think that's the way the founding fathers wanted it, and for good reason. I also have a few rental properties.

We raise a few farm animals and in the winter months, you can find me in the local rivers hunting ducks and geese from a kayak. I get some exercise playing ice hockey in a local league. I love the recreational opportunites in Oregon.

As a former county party Chairman, I always feel at home when working with grass-roots political activists. The political environment belongs to those who show up and make themselves heard.

I'm happy to serve as the State Representative for House District 23.
