Local to the Schertz/Cibolo area since 2004, back when 1103 was a 2 lane country road with pastures on both sides, I bussed tables and smoked chickens at Goerke's. I used to ride my horse to Steele High School where I was active in the Guadalupe County 4H, Cibolo Creek FFA, and proudly performed as Nitro the Knight for 3 years before graduating in 2009. I pursued my dream of becoming a Firefighter/EMT in College Station at Blinn and TEEX before traveling around the state working in Austin, Corpus Christi, and Converse. I then began my career in the oilfield that I hold to this day. I also became a Skydiving Instructor and travelled the country before meeting my beautiful wife Chloe close to home in Luling. When our family grew and we wanted to establish roots, we came back home to the family ranch in Cibolo, and fell in love with Schertz. We purchased our current home in Northcliffe in 2020.
I believe that government only exists to serve its people. I believe that responsible government starts locally, and has a duty to work hard with its residents to create an attractive, safe community, a high quality of life, and to provide essential services that improve the city. I believe in family. I believe in individual rights to create your happiness. I believe in our individual responsibility to roll up your sleeves, and do the work to make the changes you wish to see in the world. I believe leadership, love, compassion, honor, and duty begin at home.
My belief in these principles, and my desire to instill this into my family and community is why I am running to represent my neighbors as a city councilman. I'm no stranger to hard work, or seemingly impossible challenges. My experience as a leader in the oil and gas industry has taught me that nothing is impossible when determination and teamwork come together.
Experiencing first hand my family's battle with eminent domain in regards to the Cibolo Parkway Project, I have seen the very real dangers that can come from growth without proper planning, and what happens when a government forsakes the rights of its residents for profits. Learning how local government operates, and the great capacity it has to serve its people, when good people get involved and take action inspires me to get involved. Seeing the passion my neighbors in Northcliffe have to maintain our quality of life as the city grows inspired me to take action and get more involved. Currently I am serving on the Northcliffe PID Advisory Board to help my local community stop harmful development and maintain a healthy public greenspace. It is my mission to be a voice of the people if elected as a representative of my community. We're here for the long haul, and I hope to continue to make this community a place where my family, and many other families grow and thrive for generations.
