My Top 3 Priorities

  • Provide leadership to and oversight of the Kern Community College system to meet the community's requirements and desires.
  • Ensure that the decisions and actions of the Kern Community College board are transparent and clear to the community.
  • Ensure that all budgetary decisions are made in the best interest of the community while attempting to get the best value for every dollar spent.



I am a retired Navy Captain with 30 years of service where I was a fighter pilot and test pilot. I have a Batchelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Florida and a Master's degree in Global Leadership from the University of San Diego. I currently work for Calspan Corproation, an independent engineering, research and testing services company. I am a flight test pilot with Calspan and I teach test pilot students at the USAF test Pilot School located at Edwards Air Force Base. The syllabus is at the post graduate level and confers a Master's degree in Flight Test Engineering. I reside in Tehachapi, California.
