Candidate's Statement


Walton County will always be home to me. I was raised in North Walton County and graduated from Paxton High School in 1992. I loved growing up in the area and enjoying the outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, playing basketball and baseball. In fact, I spent five years as a lifeguard/beach attendant on the beaches of South Walton and Okaloosa counties and loved every minute of it. After high school, I went on to receive my AA/AS in Criminal Justice Technology from Northwest Florida State College. Then, at the age of 21 I began working with the Walton County Property Appraiser’s Office. Little did I know at the time that this job would be the start of a long, fulfilling career in appraisal work (See experience below for more detail).  With a stable job working during the week, I was able to spend the weekends appreciating the beautiful beaches of South Walton, playing volleyball, softball and golf. During that time, I married my beautiful wife, Brianne Gregor. A few years later, we ended up relocating to Crestview from 2004-2012 while I worked with the Florida Department of Revenue in Pensacola and my wife served as a Guidance Counselor for the Walton County School District. In 2009 we were blessed with our first child, Chyanne and later in 2012, our sweet boy Easton completed our family. With our growing family in mind, we decided to return home to the peace and quiet of the New Harmony area of Walton County where we have so many fond memories. Over the years, beach and softball weekends got replaced by kids’ games and new adventures, but we love sharing all Walton County has to offer with them. I am a proud Walton County resident and I hope to share my knowledge and passion by serving as your next Walton County Property Appraiser.
