I was elected to serve the citizens of Vincennes as a member of the Common Council in 2019. I am serving my second term for district two.  

I graduated from Bloomington High School in 1979 and continued my education from 1980 -1982 in Hospitality and Food Service Management at Vincennes University. After I completed my education at V.U. I worked in the food service industry and hospitality industry for twenty-one years. I have continued my career in the sales and marketing management field. I work for a division of Indiana Forms and Labels in Washington, Indiana as a sales consultant. I also work at McAlister’s Deli in Vincennes as the Brand Ambassador-as a part-time employee. I fell in love with community and city after my time at V.U. and have lived here most of my adult life. 

I have served on a variety of community organizations and boards. I am a Graduate of Leadership Knox County class of 2009. Past President of the V.U. Alumni Association Alpha chapter. Past member of the Indiana University Fan Advisory Board. I also serve as a mentor and Community Head Cook for the Southwest Indiana Walk to Emmaus. I am a Knox County Chamber Ambassador. 

I worship at Bethany Christian Church Vincennes and serve in the middle school ministry and worship tech team.  My hobbies include spending time with family, baking, and attending sporting events. I look forward to serving our community as your district 2 city councilman.

I was recently elected by the good people of District Five to serve as their voice for the Vincennes City Council. I was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana and grew up in one of the smallest cities in Indiana, Woodburn. I attended Woodlan Jr/Sr High School and after graduation headed to Vincennes University where I majored in Horticulture. During that time, I was awarded the Indiana Secondary Education Award. Upon completing my degree, I headed off to Western Kentucky University to study Agricultural Education. I then served a 2 Year full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. After I returned home, I met my wife Melissa and we were married in the Chicago Temple. We spent the first several years of our marriage in Cincinnati, and then had the career opportunity to move to Vincennes and have enjoyed raising our four children here.

Since 2006, I have had the opportunity to serve in many capacities in the community. I served seven years as the local bishop for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, served seven years on the Tree Board and Landscape Commission, served two years as the chairman for the Algonkian District of the Boy Scouts of America, served as a local Scout Master and Cub Scout leader for twelve plus years. Currently, I am a Rotary member and served as a board member for year. I recently was elected to serve on the Salvation Army Board. I serve as a Knox county volunteer for Disaster Relief for the Red Cross. I am currently employed by Vincennes University as an adjunct Professor of Horticulture and as the 1st Assistant in Grounds Care.

I enjoy spending my free time with my wife and children. We enjoy family vacations and spending time at our Michigan lake home, fishing, swimming, boating and being outdoors.
