WHy I want to represent you
My high school sweetheart, Holly, and I moved to Hilton Head Island after college in 2008. She became a teacher at Hilton Head Island Middle School and I started my hospitality career in the food and beverage industry, working as a server and bartender.
We have been able to build a good life here, advancing in our careers, buying our first house in Hilton Head Plantation, and growing our family with our seven-year-old twin daughters, Amelia and Elizabeth. We take every opportunity to share this island with them. From Island Rec Soccer and after-school walks to Mitchelville to enjoying Islander’s Beach on the weekends, it’s their home.
I worry that our island’s children will not have the same opportunities Holly and I have had. I worry that to build a life and career, they will have to move away. One of my motivators for running for Town Council is to help build opportunities for the next generation. I want to help set them up for success and ensure our economy remains stable and thriving.
I have been proud to build my career in the hospitality industry on Hilton Head Island for the last 14 years. My current position is the General Manager at Palmetto Dunes General Store where I live and breathe the Island’s Workforce Challenges daily.
