I’m a long time business Instructor with the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). Plus, I was elected to represent my brothers & sisters as UAF Representative Assembly. I’m also a long time Service Core of Retired Executives (SCORE) small business counselor.

Additionally, I have worked as the Director Small Business Development Center here in Fairbanks, AK. I have also taught at Wayland Baptist University and for Axia College on-line. I was an enrollment services specialist for the UAA and a college recruiter for DeVry University. I am also a retired member of the U.S. Air Force.

I have a best friend and wife named Janet. Janet & I have a blended family that includes seven children and many grandchildren who warm our hearts. We have called Fairbanks Alaska our home for over the last 10 years, and before that we lived in Anchorage for 15 years.

I am looking forward to the opportunities and challenges as your representative within the U.S. Congress and please note I will place the needs of Alaskans first, second, and always. Live free. Thank you for your consideration.
