I grew up about 60 miles north of Collier. I earned a BA from Westminster College in Political Science with a minor in History. While attending college, I met the woman I would marry, my wife Corrine. We decided to move to Collier to be close to her family. I currently work in a family run landscaping business. I also enjoy sports and especially football as I am an official for both high school and college. I decided to run for office to try and improve my community and make it a better place to raise our family.
