East Valley Values

I'm an Arizona native with deep roots in the East Valley.

I was born in Mesa and have spent the past 26 years in Gilbert – 18 of which I have been married to my beautiful wife Rachelle Dana. During our time in Gilbert, we have been blessed with five wonderful children.

Despite tremendous growth over the years, Gilbert and Queen Creek still remain tight-knit communities, and I care deeply about our communities and the people who have chosen to live and raise a family here.

As your State Senator, I will represent you in a dignified manner, consistent with the core values we share. You deserve nothing less.

  • Boy Scouts of America – Asst Scout Master, Cubmaster, COR, Varsity Coach

  • East Valley Boys and Girls Club Board Member
