Your contribution to the campaign will go towards campaign signs, advertising, & materials.

Prior to my law practice, I was a reserve police officer for the City of San Jose before serving as a full time Santa Cruz County Deputy Sheriff for nearly fifteen years.  I was elected President of the Deputy Sheriffs Association, served as Team Leader for S.W.A.T., and worked special assignments with both the Homicide and Rape Task Forces.   

I was appointed to multiple terms with the Civil Service Commission by the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors, including serving as Chair.  This commission makes policy recommendations to the Board and conducts hearings involving contested employee discipline matters. I have served as an arbitrator on the Santa Clara County Fee Arbitration Panel as well as an instructor at San Jose State University’s Institute of Criminal Investigations.  While in law school I co-authored California State Sheriff’s Association Statutory Duties and Authorities Manual (1988-1989).   I earned my B.A. in History from San Jose State University and obtained my Juris Doctorate from Santa Clara University. 

My varied, extensive courtroom and trial experience has provided me the necessary skills and capacity to take on the role and responsibilities of Superior Court Judge.  However, my biggest take away from my case work is not only the wins and losses, but rather in seeing each case from all sides and understanding that our adversarial system produces justice through the process.  With this comes a deep understanding of the value of working with and respecting the “other side” in any matter before the court.

The right experience equals the right choice – I would be honored to have your support.
Asset 4


I have received client referrals and current support from judges, public defenders, private attorneys, law enforcement, probation officers and court staff.

I would be honored to have an endorsement from you!
