Willie was raised in Virginia, living in Roanoke and Richmond growing up. He has lived in Northern Virginia since attending Patrick Henry College in western Loudoun County.
An old hand in online commentary, Willie started his own blog in 2008, ran a second under his own name, and has been a contributor to other right of center blogs in Virginia. Willie’s writings have been included in national publications, and working in communications, he has done substantial research and drafting for the writings of national figures.[read_more]
As a social conservative, Willie has been active within the broader conservative movement and within the Republican Party of Virginia for nearly a decade. In college, Willie was active in the College Republicans. He has participated in four statewide conventions, and has been an active member of the Loudoun and Prince William Republican Committees.
Willie has done campaign work, interned, and volunteered for statewide, and state Senate campaigns. Additionally he has done political work in four states other than Virginia.
Growing up in new media, Willie assists committees and campaigns with building a presence in social media.
Willie resides in Prince William County with his wife (who must be a woman of nearly infinite grace). He loves country music and the NY Mets. On that last point, he has spent a lifetime of developing the inner strength necessary to support his team.
