I am a Wyoming Native, a University of Wyoming graduate, a Civil Engineer, a Marine Corps Aviator, a Naval War College graduate, a combat veteran, and a retired Marine Corps Colonel. I am an American patriot dedicated to the service of our great nation who will always stand for our Flag and defend our Constitution. I believe in the American Dream, American Exceptionalism, and the American Spirit. As the husband to a Navy Nurse, the father of three grown daughters, and the son and brother of Marine Corps Officers, I am keenly aware of the sacrifices laid upon the altar of our freedom.
I am not a politician, and I am not from aristocracy. I am a common man who spent a career successfully leading people to achieve desired results and one who has the courage to make tough decisions and stand behind them.
I have helped shape legislative and procedural change in North Carolina, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands; I have shaped enterprise change in DoD and the Marine Corps; all by finding commonalities among opposing views.
I have traveled all over our great nation and have seen enough of the world to know that anywhere in Wyoming is better than anywhere else and I intend to keep it that way.
