I started the advocacy group called #PurpleForParents to fight for parents’ rights. I own a digital marketing and advertising business that helps companies who have been negatively impacted by far-left tech companies. Having been raised by an army helicopter pilot in West Germany, South Korea, and all over our United States… I know from experience that America is the best place for freedom on Earth! My candidacy is about service. I believe in an originalist view of the Constitution, the righteousness of our nuclear family traditions, and the untapped potential of the American people. I am asking you to help me stand up to protect our freedoms. I am asking your endorsement.

Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Expanding background checks to include guns purchased from private individuals. O* I want to lift current restrictions on Gun rights. There should be no such thing as a Gun Free Zone.
2. Adding “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” or “gender expression” to the protected classes of race, religion, age, sex, and ancestry in nondiscrimination law. O* Being the Founder of #PurpleForParents, I am against this more than anyone else in the legislature.
