I currenly work as a policy analyst at IAC where I conduct research and lobby on behalf of the counties’ interests to the State Legislature. My current research is focused on Idaho public lands and intergovernmental affairs. To view a few of my working projects click here.

I earned an MA at Michigan State University in the Department of Political Science. I did my undergraduate work at Boise State University where I earned a BS in political science as both a McNair, and Top Ten Scholar. I was also a member of the Honors College. Prior to my undergrad, I served five years on active duty in the United States Navy attached to the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) for four years, and one year attached to a joint service command in Ramadi and Balad, Iraq.
