Welcome! And thank you for visiting my website.

Thank you to everyone for your support in my efforts to represent you.  It is a privilege to work on your behalf as a part of our citizen legislature. I am honored and humbled by your decision to return me to office for another term.

My commitment as your representative is to defend and preserve the things that make this community and this state the very best place to raise a family.

For starters, here are a couple things you should know about me:

  • I work for you, my constituents, and you only.
  • I represent the values of this community.
  • A lifetime of experience, including six years with the Reagan Administration in Washington, prepared me to serve you.

On a personal note:

  • I’m a husband and father of five.
  • I was born and raised in Utah and am a 20-year resident of Bountiful.
  • By profession I am an architect and business owner.
  • I’ve spent my life working to reinforce traditional values and strengthen our community.

And let me share a couple of recent honors and endorsements from the 2012 campaign:

  • Endorsed in my current campaign (as in my last) by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).  The NFIB is the professional association of small businesses, which are the engines of our economy.
  • Although I did not vote with them on every issue, I was a strong advocate for 2nd Amendment rights. As a result of this record, I am pleased to receive the endorsement once again of the NRA Political Victory Fund.
  • The Utah Business Coalition recently named me one of Utah's Top 30 Business-Friendly Legislators for 2012.

I hope you take a few minutes to find out more about my background and what I stand for. I look forward to getting to know those of you I haven't met.  If you have the opportunity, please come to the capitol during the upcoming session. You can find a schedule of what's happening at http://le.utah.gov/, along with information on legislators, bills, committee assignments, you name it.

Of course you can go to my Contact Me tab above or click here for contact information so you can reach me personally. I would love to hear from you or see you on Capitol Hill.


I'm proud to be your representative. I'm also a businessman, architect, and long-time political activist. More...
