Meet Josh

A proud New Mexico native, I was born and raised in this magnificent state. I grew up witnessing the unwavering determination of my hardworking parents as they built their small business from scratch. Their commitment to success instilled in me the value of hard work, dedication, and the importance of family. As your State Representative, I am devoted to advocating for small businesses, which are the backbone of our economy, and addressing the challenges they face, including overreaching regulations and outdated tax codes.

My educational journey began in a private religious elementary school before transitioning to Albuquerque Public Schools in the second grade. A proud Cibola High School graduate, I am currently completing my associate’s degree at CNM and will graduate in the summer of 2023. I am thrilled to have been accepted into Western New Mexico University this fall, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in political science.
