My family and I are proud to call Marion home. When my wife, Megan, and I got married in 2007, we made a decision to put down roots and start our family here in this community. Raising our children, Elliot and Isabella, here in Marion has been a great choice for us - the choice of schools in Marion and Grant County, as well as countless opportunities for youth involvement in the arts and athletic programs, are excellent. We’re blessed with so many friends and neighbors, and a faith community where we are actively involved. Marion is truly our home.

I graduated college just down the road at Anderson University, where I received my Bachelor’s degree. There I studied both music and business - economics, accounting, management, and other courses that served as an introduction into the business world. Since 2003, I’ve worked in broadcast radio, corporate sales, construction, and IT, but for the past few years I’ve worked as a specialist in the field of Marketing and Communications, helping individuals and organizations share their message with the world. My wife and I have actually both started small businesses in Marion; for the past six years, my wife has been the founder and executive director of Lark’s Song - the non-profit organization that she started right in the heart of downtown Marion. The opportunity has presented itself to us more than once to relocate to somewhere else, and we’ve said no. We love this community.

Throughout our time in Marion, both my wife and myself have served on boards and committees, and volunteered with various organizations that are working to make Marion and Grant County a better place for all of us. I believe there is a renewed, contagious hope for the future of Marion, and I’m excited to continue working for this community and help us develop our true potential - we really are a “City of Champions!”
