I am proud to be born a fourth generation Coloradoan . My father’s side settled in Colorado, homesteading on the Eastern Plains in the 1880’s after immigrating from Ireland. My mother’s family immigrated from Ireland as well and arrived in Colorado via South Dakota and Kansas the early 1900s. As a fourth generation Coloradoan, I believe that our core values drive who we are and how we perform our responsibilities.
Representing district 64 and the families and communities of eastern Colorado is one of my greatest responsibilities. I work hard to represent our values and to fight for our way of life at the State Capitol. I am married to an incredible wife and we have been blessed with four wonderful children. It is my family that gives me the drive to get up everyday and work for a better future, not only for them, but for every family in House District 64 and in Colorado.
In addition to being active in my Church, with my children and various family activities, I am a volunteer firefighter, and have sat on numerous boards and committees, including school advisory committees. I am blessed to so far have a life full of opportunities which have given me a very strong understanding of the many issues that everyday working Colorado families face; especially families that live in the small communities that are the fabric of the 64th State House District.
