Personal Brief

My interest in understanding water systems developed in Northern California where I spent most of my life. My family worked in the timber industry where water quality regulations and the impact of drought were constant topics of conversation, and I lived and worked in agriculture-based communities where water scarcity and water rights were at the forefront of public discourse.

I am proud to work at WSC because of its One Water approach providing creative, sustainable solutions to the complicated water landscape throughout the West Coast.

I enjoy helping people achieve their goals and it is immensely satisfying to see somebody use their strengths to overcome challenges. That is why I volunteer as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for a child in the foster care system, and I encourage anyone interested in improving the quality of life of a child to attend an informational meeting at a local CASA office.

My wife and I live in Morro Bay and we enjoy going on outdoor adventures together with our mutt, Rocky. I spend most my free time studying and practicing archery and beekeeping, and I am an ardent baseball fan.
