My Vision & Mission

What I Believe


I understand the need for taxes. We need to be able to pay for the maintenance of our roads, infrastructure, and public safety. I also know how wasteful the government can be with our tax dollars. I will be a watchdog of our tax dollars in Wicomico County to keep our taxes low and fair.


I grew up believing we are a nation of laws and freedoms. I love our Constitution and I believe in putting all of our God given rights first, starting with those enumerated in the US Bill of Rights and Maryland’s Declaration of Rights.


Our kids are the future and we must sow seeds of success for our generations to come. As your next councilman I will back the parents’ role in their child’s education. It is the parents role to raise their children as they see fit. It is the school’s role to educate the children in traditional subjects such as reading, writing, math, science, history and civics. I support trade programs equally, if not more than college preparatory curriculum.  I am a strong advocate for Parent Choice and School Choice.

Public Safety

As a citizen of our great county, I know that Wicomico County remains great because of the first responders that put their lives on the line every day and night. While we sleep, they are on watch, ensuring our safety and providing assistance when needed. I will always support our first responders and stand behind their tough judgment.

Small Business

As a 3rd generation small business owner, I understand the life that comes with it. The long days of hard work and the long nights of bringing that work home. As your next councilman, I will support local business. Small business owners are a unique group who create and have  the ability to make our local economy boom. As your councilman I will keep your taxes low so you can grow and make Wicomico a place to thrive.


Like everyone else, I have been affected by the SARS-CoV-2. We must learn to live with Covid. We must be smart and sensitive about our actions and decisions. We must be considerate of one another’s  private medical conditions and choices. I will always defend your right to stay open and operate your businesses. I will also defend the individual’s choice with regard to their own personal medical decisions.


There will always be growth. In the time I have lived in Wicomico County, I have seen it double in size. The leadership in our county needs to focus on healthy growth, not just any growth. We need to protect the natural beauty of our farmlands, woodlands and waterways, all that makes up our Eastern Shore.

Parks and Recreation

As an outdoor enthusiast, I want to preserve our unique natural resources throughout Wicomico county. Additionally I want to promote growth in our Parks and Recreation to increase tourism to our area.


As an avid hunter and fisherman, I have gotten to know many of our local farmers and watermen. Our farmers and watermen will not be forgotten on my watch. They provide us with the foods necessary to nourish our bodies and the luxury of  Eastern Shore delicacies such as the Maryland Blue Crab and Chesapeake Bay Oyster. They must be respected and protected. I will always vote on their behalf and have a voice for them.

Not me, not we, but us all
can do something if we work together.


“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter
and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
― Abraham Lincoln

I was born in Olney, Maryland and am a lifelong resident of the Old Line State. I have lived in Wicomico County for 18 years and graduated Parkside High School in 2011. My father and I own and operate Acme Ceramic Tile Co. I started my career as a tile craftsman right out of high school and together, we have grown our thriving business to include two showrooms and countless happy customers. 

Working right out of high school in our family business helped make me the man I am today. I have learned that hard work and dedication fosters accountability. Entrepreneurship has made me confident that to grow the local economy we must support local businesses. I realize how much of a need there is to bring those skills to (maybe) Wicomico County. I will bring fresh ideas and a new perspective to the table. I will be a good steward for  your tax dollars. I will put Wicomico County and all of  its residents first in all of my decision making. As a student of our United States and Maryland Constitutions, I will defend the God given rights of the people. When you elect me as your next Council member-at-large, I will bring ambition and excitement for our county’s future!
