I have lived in Marion County for over 30 years. My wife of 33 years (Ricki) passed away in 2019. We were blessed with 11 children and 14 grandchildren. Recently I got remarried to Jessica Throckmorton. We reside in Ocala, Marion County, and attend Good News church.
I am a State Certified residential building contractor. This year I celebrated my 20th year in business. I currently serve our local trade organization, the Marion County Building Industry Association as the Executive Officer. I was named Builder of the Year in 2011.
I began my time of public service being elected to the Marion County commission from 2004-2016 and served as Chairman of the Board 3 times. I achieved the designation as a Certified County Commissioner and Advanced County Commissioner from the Florida Association of Counties by completing their education coursework.
I was elected to Florida House of Representatives in November 2016 and subsequently reelected in 2018 and 2020. During my time in the legislature, I have served on numerous committees and had the honor of being the Chairman of the Secondary Education and Career Development Subcommittee this session. In 2017/2018, I was named Legislator of the Year by the Florida Police Chiefs Association. In 2019, the College of Central Florida Advocacy award. I have been honored multiple times by various organizations that include Florida Family Action Council, Florida Chamber of Commerce, Associated Industries of Florida, and Americans for Prosperity for my work advocating for families and small businesses in Florida.
When I have time off from work and legislative duties, I like to spend time with my family, fishing, playing golf and exploring “Old” Florida.
