I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and ﬁrst came to work in Montana when I was 19 years old. My heart never really went back and I continued to work summers while I studied Conservation back east in Ohio, but once I was done with that I made a beeline West for a succession of jobs that have taught me a great deal about life. While living in Montana I have been a bus driver, bell hop, bartender, musician, maintenance specialist,personnel manager, guide, hotel manager
and most recently, a teacher. I’m currently an instructor for the Biology department at MSU where I teach Molecular Biology and Medical Ethics.
I met my wife Katie in 1992 while we were working in Yellowstone Park. We moved to Bozeman in 1997, bought a house and enrolled at Montana State University where we received a quality education. I graduated with a degree to teach Physics, Biology and Chemistry. We are blessed with two great boys, Kelty and Finnian, who are eight and six years old. Montana has been good for us.
I’m running for ofﬁce because I believe that this state will have a brighter future if we do a better job of planning for it. I’ll be knocking on a lot of doors in the months leading up to the election and I look forward to meeting more people on Bozeman’s south side. I hope to learn from you and I hope to represent you in the next legislature.
