Oceanside Fire Department


Good day to you, and thank you for taking a moment to read this short bio.

I am so fortunate and blessed to have an incredibly supportive wife and two great sons.  They provide the foundation for my decision making ethics.

I was born and raised in Arizona, but have lived in California since 2000. I have played college and semi-professional soccer, and coached highly competitive youth.

I've been in the fire service full-time since 1996, and with the Oceanside Fire Department since 2001.  I am a member of Southern California Interagency Incident Management Team 1.
