About

Dedication and Service

I have lived and worked in District 15 for the past 38 years.

I am actively still work in the consulting engineering business. Over the past 38 years, I have helped develop West Ouachita Parish performing site planning, subdivisions, building design, drainage works and sewer works.

In the engineering business one solves problems every day for the public which I like to call “opportunities”.

With my background in business and engineering, I feel I can solve the opportunities that once in the legislature will benefit the people of District 15.

Life experiences that I have had, highly qualify me for the position I am currently seeking in District 15.

Away from work, I enjoy golfing, fishing, and playing music. I am and have been involved with community and civic organizations. One organization I am very involved in is the the West Monroe Civitan Club of which I have been a member for over 25 years. I was very involved with the Civilian project called The Smiles Park at Kiroli Park. The Smiles Park is a play area for physically and mentally challenged children to allow them to play and interact with other children.

I am a member of the NRA and support the 2nd Amendment. I am pro-life and believe in right to live laws. I would be honored to represent District 15 and ask for you support in the upcoming election on October 12, 2019.
