Personal Biography
I truly believe when the state gets out of the way and enables people to do more and be more that we all get to achieve more, and a lot of the work we've accomplished in New Hampshire is proof positive of that.

After graduating Salem High School, I first ran for State Representative in 2012 at the age of 18 to fight for Salem as I wanted to see gaming expanded to revitalize Rockingham Park in Salem. Unfortunately, we came close during my first two terms but never passed expanded gaming out of the House of Representatives. I left the legislature after two terms in 2016 in order to pursue my Masters degree and start my career.

I still live in Salem, now in Tuscan Village where once stood the mighty Rockingham Racetrack, and continue to fight for Salem in Concord by advocating against an Income, Sales, or increased taxes across the board. I ran to represent Salem once more in 2020 and was proud to be re-elected by the voters then and in 2022. I will fight for lower taxes, more government accountability, and to make sure we are not harming the taxpayers with every piece of legislation we consider.
