My Top 3 Priorities

  • Revitalize our economy and incentivize business retention and expansion.
  • Provide more recreational opportunities for youth and families.
  • Bring a state-of-the-art health care facility to Cloverdale.



Profession:Human Resources
Planning Commissioner, Cloverdale Planning Commission — Appointed position (2016–current)


As a member of the Cloverdale Planning Commission I have learned the importance of responsible growth and sustained vitality while maintaining our water rights and the need for conservation. I am dedicated to maintaining the charm of our small-town community.

As an employee of the largest health care organization in Sonoma County I have witnessed people from all walks of life who struggle with finances, health and life, and I found I have a passion for helping those individuals.  From this I learned of my desire to be in public service.

As a husband and father I want Cloverdale to have a sustainable path forward for the next generation of residents.
