I'm a life-long Utahn, partially lived in Lehi from 2001 to 2006, and became a first-time home owner in Lehi in 2021. I live with my wife, three kids (Newborn, 3, and 6), and my two dogs (Golden Retriever and Siberian Husky). For hobbies, I race my Camaro and Tesla in the state's SCCA autocross, I'm a bullet-biker, I enjoy Utah's public hiking trails, I'm a firearm enthusiast, I'm a cryptocurrency enthusiast, I like tinkering with smart devices, and I like politics. In 2022, I ran as a Libertarian candidate for Utah's state house district 51. In Spring Semester 2023, I taught the digital forensics investigations undergrad capstone as adjunct faculty at Utah Valley University.
I graduated from UVU with a B.S. in criminal justice with an emphasis in law enforcement and a minor in computer science. After my Bachelor's degree, I went back to UVU and graduated with a M.S. in Cybersecurity.
I am currently one of the two At-Large members of the Utah Libertarian Party's Executive Committee, one of the three At-Large members of the Utah County Libertarian Party, and have served in the state executive committee role since April, 2021 and the county executive committee role since April, 2023. I have worked in the tech sector for 18 years, with 7 years experience in software quality assurance, 3 years of experience as a cyber security engineer in product security for smart IoT devices, and currently just over a year as a cyber security lead/architect handling all product security for an advanced robotics company where I design and set product security policies and standards. My B.S. in criminal justice, M.S. in cybersecurity, and my work in corporate cybersecurity policy gives me a unique perspective that I could bring to Lehi City Council.
