As a lifelong resident advocate of American Fork City, I now have the fortune of watching all eight of my grandchildren grow up here. I understand the pulse of this community and always look to build consensus in all that I do to enrich it. It is very humbling to help lead this city in times of both prosperity and uncertainty. The greatest asset we have in our city lies within its residents. I value my time as Mayor, meeting our wonderful citizens and yearning to understand and address their concerns. 

I pledge to continue giving all my effort in leading this city through the unique challenges we face both today and in the future. I place a high priority on critical infrastructure such as roads, water, parks and trails; and firmly believe that local government has the greatest impact to our residents. We are uniquely positioned as the Hub of so many wonderful amenities which allow biking, hiking, boating and other activities within minutes. I will continue to promote our strengths and make American Fork City a great place to live, work and play. I personally Thank You for your continued support in doing so.

Husband. Small business owner. MBA. Marine. Conservative. Optimist. Dog dad. Ever since I came to Utah with my family I knew there was something special about this place. I have been blessed to live and work in many locations from Georgia to Hawaii, Australia to Afghanistan. Throughout that time I have always come back to Utah as my home. It is where I decided to start a business. It is where I decided to start a family. It is where I have planted my roots. I have many years of experience leading Marines at various levels, working with senior leaders in organizations helping them solve problems, starting and managing a business through a once in a lifetime pandemic, and volunteering in my local community. I know that the greatest impact is made at the local level and I know that as a community working together we can achieve anything we set our minds to. No problem is too hard to overcome. I am an extremely energetic and active person who loves all things sports (currently jiu jitsu) and outdoors. I love Utah for its natural beauty and you can usually find me in the mountains no matter the season.
