Raised in Essex, CA a small community 40 miles west of Needles, CA my family owned and operated a gas station, café and towing service.  From a young age I learned what work was and helped with running our family business.

I graduated from Needles High School with honors then attended trade school in Las Vegas and returned to Needles in 1993.  I married my lifelong friend Domini and have two daughters, Darrian (17) and Jaycee (11).

I was the General Manager for Active Towing for 17 years, but recently decided to make a career change.  I now work for Arizona Pipe Line in a supervisor’s position.

The reason I ran for Needles City Council is clearly to see our town grow, prosper and give our children a reason to return home to work, live and raise their families here.  My daughter’s want more than anything to go off to college learn and return home and start businesses and raise families in a town that they call home.

By running for City Council I feel I am beginning the process of turning this town’s future around.  This town was in need of some new leaders, one with no personal agendas but to make the best decision for the city as a whole.  The City is a business and has to be run like one.
