Why are you running for office?

As part of a military family, I moved often, finally settling in Maine as soon as I finished high school. During high school I was involved in rallies that brought awareness to issues facing society such as our environment​,​ natural resources​ and social justice​. I studied these issues further at the University of Maine​ at Farmington​ and achieved my B.A. in Biology.​ ​During my career as an airline pilot, I spent the time during my travels around the world understanding the common problems of humanity, developing solutions for them, and finding ways to implement them. I had the chance to practice my ability to listen and incorporate a wide variety of perspectives.​ ​In my work for social change, I became a founding board member of Maine Coast Men. This organization formed to help men collectively overcome unhealthy societal messages.​ ​In 2000, was elected to the Selectboard in my hometown of Camden, the Maine House in 2006 and the Maine Senate in 2014. In these positions, I was able to use the leadership skills I developed in business, as a captain for Delta Air Lines, as a boat delivery captain and in my nonprofit work.
