more freedom, less legislation


Most young people involved in the Tech industry end up leaving the local area they are born in to pursue larger salaries + jobs. However, early last year I decided that this is home and to buy a historic 1903 house, Since then I’ve become much more invested in investigating local ordinances and laws relating to property owners and rights. I was one of the lucky ones, I project nearly 95% of all of those in my generation will be unable to a buy a home where they grew up. Since this is my home I want to ensure that I am doing everything that I can do to make sure we are ensuring a sustainable future in Coeur d’Alene. 

First and foremost, I will fight for the individual rights of citizens and home-owners in Coeur d’Alene, The amount of bureaucracy that has been blanketed across our city is egregious, I promise to do all in my power to not only prevent additional legislation that will infringe on individuals constitutional rights but to actively seek out and remove current policies that fit the same description. Less Legislation, More Freedom. 


Growth, what does that mean to me? I was born in Florence Italy and raised right here in Coeur d'Alene. I've seen the area grow and develop as I have. I remember playing in the baseball fields that are now McEuen park, Additionally I remember when prairie street, was in fact a prairie. Growth is natural especially with such a beautiful area like North Idaho and fighting against this growth is futile.  However, ensuring that as we grow we do not allow the things that made us great in the first place do not get lost in bureaucratic agendas or anti-freedom personal legislation. Before starting my campaign, I’ve studied business and entrepreneurship and consider myself a young man who is extremely comfortable in the digital world and an active member in the Innovation Collective Community, as well as heavily involved in the Crypto Currency world. At 17 yrs old holding over 5 certifications for various areas of marketing and information technology. I’ve attended North Idaho College making the dean's list every year, and have established a successful marketing company before my 21st birthday.

Early in my career I helped grow local businesses providing over 200 jobs to the local area, Working with Tedder Industries being brought on to help lead them into the future of digital marketing assisting in generating over $50,000,000 to the local community. 

In 2020 I’ve shifted my focus to consult and be responsible for large scale marketing projects for various companies which net between $10-$30 million dollars in revenue.
