He has served the state of Louisiana as a member of the Battle of New Orleans Bicentennial Commission and the Louisiana State "America 250" Commission (Interim Chairman). He worked as a legislative aide in the Louisiana State Senate and in the Louisiana Department of Revenue, Department of Public Affairs.

But his commitment to St Bernard Parish has always been his top priority. He served on the St. Bernard Parish Fisheries Task Force and is a member of St. Bernard Parish Board of Elections.
