Biographical Info:

I grew up in Norwalk, CA on a small farm in the city. I attended and graduated from Cypress College and California State University Fullerton. While in college I worked as a Community Service Officer for the University Police on my campus.

I was recruited by the Mesa Police Department, and moved to Mesa, AZ in 1992. I served our community for 27 years and retired as a Police Sergeant in 2018. I then served 2 more years as a volunteer Reserve Officer, frequently filling in as a School Resource Officer.

I now own and operate a small business.

I serve on a Public Charter School Board in my neighborhood.


I’m a retired Mesa Police Sergeant who served and protected our community for 27 years, and you can be confident I will continue fighting to protect our freedoms.

I am proud to be a Christian, America-first conservative. My wife, Heather, and I have been married for 24 years and we want to raise our two daughters in a safe, affordable, and free Arizona.

Two years ago, I chose to run for office because our State Senator was not upholding our values. I beat the incumbent Senator with nearly twice as many votes in the Republican primary. The message was clear.

With your continued support, I will be a voice for individuals, including the unborn, and bring integrity and principled leadership to the Arizona Senate.
