I have been a resident of Smith County for over three decades. My wife, Kelli, and I have two children: Braxton and Elli. My family has been very blessed by the residents of Smith County, especially the support shown towards my son.
I have been in law enforcement for more than 30 years, having the duty & powers of a state peace officer to enforce all laws of Texas. I was an active Game Warden for 20 years and serving 10 years as a Special Game Warden Reserve, with much of that time spent in Smith County.
I have also been a small business owner, which gave me experience budgeting, managing employees, and making a payroll.
I view my candidacy as an opportunity to give back to the people by continuing to serve honestly and ethically.

For 30 years, I was a Texas Parks and Wildlife State Game Warden. I spent the majority of that time in Smith County.
