Why I'm Running

Born and raised here in Georgia, I grew up watching my mom, a public school teacher, and my dad, a Vietnam veteran and architect, work hard to raise me and my two older brothers.

I attended Oglethorpe University where I met my wife, Kalen. We graduated and were married in 2002 and in 2005 decided to find a house in a community that we could call home. We put our entire life savings into this house we still live in today – where we are now raising our 11-year-old daughter.

Throughout my life – from being in student government at Oglethorpe University, to fighting East Cobb cityhood with the East Cobb Alliance, to serving as East Cobb Liaison on Commissioner Richardson’s Community Cabinet – I have believed in community empowerment.

In my professional career, I specialize in bringing people together to achieve a common goal and I have been able to apply that talent to my community.

I have had the opportunity to sit at the kitchen table with residents and listen to their concerns, have helped address actual problems in the county and have seen first-hand the ways the Commissioners can directly improve the lives of Cobb residents.

I will be ready on day one to be a part of a Commission dedicated to meeting the needs of a growing Cobb County, improving your experience and building a better future for all of us and the next generation.

We Have a Future To Build

We have a responsibility to build a better future in Cobb for our children, our seniors, and all our friends and family who live in our community.

I want to make Cobb a place that my daughter can be proud to call home when she grows up.

A county that cares about our aging seniors, where they can live with dignity, and with the resources to stay connected – like access to transportation and healthcare.

A community that honors those who built what we enjoy here while also embracing the new residents who now call Cobb home.

A home for the next generation, one that welcomes them, connects them, educates them, and employs them.
