I’m running a campaign that puts people above politics and focuses on fixing our broken government system. Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to work throughout the region with the great doctors and scientists, entrepreneurs and computer programmers, and painters, carpenters, and union workers of our state. I pride myself on my ability to listen to experts and to find practical solutions to meaningful problems.
I’ve lived in Missouri my entire life. My wife, son, and I spend weekdays in St. Louis and most weekends at my family’s farm outside of Washington, MO. Regardless of where I am, you can usually find me deep in conversation with someone at a coffee shop, gas station, or restaurant, getting to know the people of our state. While I love to talk, I also love to listen, and I’m fortunate to know people across our state and to have heard what they want.
And it’s really pretty simple.
We all want to be treated with dignity and respect. We all want access to affordable healthcare. We all want high-quality education for our kids. We all want good paying jobs. No one wants the government telling them what they can and can’t do, but everyone realizes that we need accountability and to be responsible in making sure that people are safe. I’ve also found that most people are fairly reasonable when you drop the charged rhetoric and just talk face to face.
Politics has gotten in the way of the government making our lives better. I decided to run because I love helping people solve hard problems.
