I grew up in Montana, the “Treasure State”. I’m the first of two sons to a Panamanian immigrant father and Rosebud Sioux Native American mother.
I’m passionate about the intersection of technology and politics. I currently work on the front lines conservative politics.
My career started helping elect Secretary Ryan Zinke and Sen. Steve Daines in 2014. I served as a Team Captain for the Montana Republican Party’s Engagement Team.
This experience taught me a great leader “takes out the trash” and isn’t above any task.
After college, I joined Turning Point USA in Chicago and served as the Editor-In-Chief of their online news site. In one calendar year, my team and I reached more than 12.8 million page views.
At the end my year, the website had over 200 contributors from across the USA and I managed 7 full-time employees.
Now I work at Leadership Institute as the Deputy Director of Digital Training.
I speak to and train over two thousand people a year in activism, web development, social media, and programming.
Here’s a few courses I teach:
Introduction to Python
The Adobe Creative Cloud Suite
Increasing Website Traffic
Introduction to Online Security
In three years, I’ve trained more than 10,200 people.
I also contribute to the Leadership Institute’s Campus Reform where I occasionally speak on Fox News, Fox Business, OANN, and Newsmax.
In my free time, I enjoy great whiskey (bourbon especially), good music, being outdoors and a game of chess.
Some controversial opinions? I enjoy pineapple on my pizza. Taylor Swift is nothing short of fantastic and I’m #TeamCanon all the way.
I have a play hard, work harder mentality. I wear pink on Wednesdays and I’m an pragmatic optimist.
Finally, I enjoy traveling the USA and making many friends along the way.
