Why are you running?

I believe in South Carolina—in our people, in our values, in our future.

As a state we are experiencing unprecedented growth and opportunity, and the Upstate is spearheading the way. We need bold leadership in Columbia to rein in tax burdens and out of control government spending, and enact much-needed ethics reforms.

I am passionate about education. South Carolinians, especially our children, deserve a far greater education than we are currently receiving. 50th in the nation is unacceptable.

I am proudly pro-life. My wife and I recently welcomed our first child, Ella Marie, to our family, and this issue is close to our hearts. Our state must protect the life of every person, no matter how small.

Columbia is in need of solid Conservative leadership, and I will help bring that to our State Capital.

What is your Background?

My wife and I attended high school and college in Greenville. We love the Taylors community and are honored to call it home.

I attended law school at the University of South Carolina and became a licensed attorney in 2015. Over the last couple of years, my wife and I began to take over daily operations of her family’s small business, and today we enjoy the experience of running Majesty Music, a Christian publishing company that serves thousands of churches and individuals across the United States. Although I enjoy the practice of law, the experience of owning and operating a small business has opened my eyes to the paramount importance of pro-business policies.

I have been involved in politics for several years, volunteering for campaigns, being active in the Greenville County Republican Party, and being elected to attend the national GOP convention.
