I’m a Montanan with a rich family history, representing two American dreams. On my mother’s side, the dream of early settlers in territorial Montana, and on my father’s, that of Armenian immigrants, coming to America to work hard and make a new life.
I was born and raised in Great Falls, proudly served my country in the US Army for 13 years, married my high school sweetheart and raised three great kids.
In 2006, we settled our family in the Flathead Valley, where we had the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, send our kids to great schools, and make friends with wonderful people who come from many different social and political perspectives. I’ve had a long, thriving career, working in Information Technology for large enterprise operations and as a private consultant. I’ve volunteered with many outstanding organizations, such as Kalispell’s Cancer Support Community and Habitat for Humanity to deepen my connections in the Valley and give back to the community I love.
In 2016, I became more interested in local politics. Leaning on the values I was raised with, I wanted to make an impact locally! The United States Constitution and its Bill of Rights forms the core of my principals. Any issue I consider has to pass through the crucible of enhancing individual rights or support for the community free market.
With the troubling rise of pointless infighting and corruption found in politics and government, I have come to realize that I can no longer wait for someone else to help create a better climate and help instill Montanan principals - it’s time for me to roll up my sleeves and get to work!
