I am a Kansas Native who has spent my entire life in the Manhattan and Pottawatomie County communities. My wife, Heather, and I have spent our last 26 years living in the Wamego area, raising three wonderful children Taylor, Madison and Jace.
I am a third generation law enforcement officer, who was raised with strong values of honesty, integrity, and responsibility that have shaped the way I serve the community.
I have spent my entire law enforcement career of 26 years with the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office. I have had the pleasure of serving the citizens of Pottawatomie County in the capacity of Patrol Deputy, Detective, and Undersheriff. Serving as the Undersheriff for the last 15 years, I have gained a vast understanding of how to operate a professional Sheriff’s Office.
Throughout my law enforcement career, I have been exposed to a multitude of situations that have challenged me and increased my knowledge of the different facets of law enforcement. In addition to my experience, I have attended numerous trainings that helped ensure the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office stays progressive and effective.
I am very passionate about our communities, and the profession that I have devoted my entire career to. I will strive to continue to make Pottawatomie County a place where people want to work, live, and raise a family.
