I am fortunate to have grown up in the very District that I now have the honor to represent. After receiving both primary and secondary education in the Pender County school system (K-12th Grade), I attended North Carolina State University where I had the privilege of graduating Valedictorian with a degree in Civil Engineering.
Since graduating college and working in the Civil Engineering field, I have been granted a firsthand insight of the unnecessary regulation choking the economy, the growth of centralized government, and the erosion of our private property rights and individual freedoms. This insight led me at an early age to seek the truth of our Country’s founding principles that has led to my passionate stance of government being limited to its proper role and my respect for our individual liberties.
After my wife Tonya and I began a family together (where we are blessed with our son Luke, and daughter Alexa), we realized that unless we got involved in turning around the direction of our State and Nation that our children would not have the opportunities that we have been so fortunate to experience. Due to this perspective it has been my desire to provide the much needed representation and leadership in Raleigh for the people of the 16th House District so that all individuals in Pender and Onslow Counties would have a greater opportunity to prosper.
Nearing the end of my first term as your State House representative I can claim with confidence that I remained true to the very principles that I committed you, and I stand ready to continue to fight in Raleigh on your behalf. I humbly ask for your support.
