Why I am Running to Win, In District 131 For Texas State Representative

It’s Time for an Upgrade!

Our state and our local community needs a Visionary, a strong new voice, a job creator, a concerned neighbor, an advocate for our educators and working families, an encourager of our youth, appreciative of our seniors, and a friend to our small business community.

I am a husband, father and business leader for over 21 years. I am also a friend, mentor, and supporter of any and everyone who strives for their best and for the betterment of themselves, their families, and their community.

My goal and vision as your future Texas State Representative is to utilize my energy, experiences, fearlessness and ingenuity, and focus on Problem Solving, quality of life, compromise, and effective solutions that helps all Texans.

Problem Solving  ★  Quality of Life  ★  Compromise  ★  Effective Solutions

What I plan to accomplish for Texans and District 131

My fellow friends and neighbors, allow me to:


Fight for you on issues that concern you, your family, your neighbors, and our state, in order to see a better tomorrow for us all…


Bring together our Community, across all ages, races and genders, and Inspire them to be Courageous, Empathetic, United, Respectful and Compassionate!


Let me share my many successes, struggles and failures, as I remain standing proud today, and remind and show our Young People, that Mistakes develop Maturity, that Failure is Not Final, and our Decisions direct our Destiny!


Let me journey to the neighborhoods, help centers, and households that struggle daily with poverty, incarcerated family members, lack of affordable housing and good jobs, nutritional food, mental, family and work-related issues. Allow me to Listen, Pray, Encourage, and fight hard across all political ideologies for Change in Policies as Texas State Representative, that can uplift and renew hope in every man, women and child in Texas and beyond.
