I was born and raised in Lawton where my dad worked at the Goodyear Plant. I am proud to have grown up in a community that taught me the common sense values that guide my life today.

I am also the proud product of Oklahoma public schools having graduated from Eisenhower High School and the University of Oklahoma. My experiences in public schools showed me the value of investing in our education system. After all, Oklahoma's kids are our future.

I was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 2014 and have been a common sense conservative and a champion for our jobs, our schools and our values. I am proud to call Lawton home where I live with my wife, Kylee.

With the support of my wife and family, I have decided to continue serving my hometown and area communities in the State Senate. I would be honored to earn your support.
