Today, I am officially announcing my candidacy for the Missouri House of Representatives in the 88th District. I want to bring a common sense approach to making sure government works for the people and not against them.

With many years of experience helping others to obtain elected office, I wish to seek office to better serve the citizens of the 88th district and the State of Missouri. Creating a competitive economy with strong, good paying jobs, must be the top priority of the Missouri Legislature. An essential element to a good economy is an excellent, educated workforce. I have seen firsthand the power of education in helping individuals achieve their dreams. These two issues, education and the economy, are the primary issues motivating me to run. I also feel there should be greater transparency and accountability in politics today and is will be a strong proponent of ethics reform.

I graduated from Saint Louis University Law School in 2005. After which I served as an assistant prosecuting attorney in Cole County and St. Charles County before joining my current law firm. I currently serves on the board of the St. Louis Pachyderms and as general counsel and Co-Chair of the Missouri Federation of Young Republicans. In my spare time I volunteer with the Join Hands, ESL Boys Club. Currently I live in Creve Coeur with my wife Sarah and our daughter.
