I am truly energized by the opportunity to serve as a SUHSD Board trustee. I appreciate the collaborative effort required to ensure the success and opportunity for growth of our children. My involvement with the SUHSD Board is driven by a desire to provide the type of educational experience that breeds inspirational individuals beyond high school. My background includes a heavy commitment to our youth, including coaching athletics, board service and non-profit work.

I graduated from California State University Sacramento.  Subsequently, I secured my J.D. from Golden Gate University in San Francisco. Outside of my Board service, I am a practicing Attorney with my own law offices serving Shasta County, Humboldt County, and the surrounding areas.My professional experience lends incite to dispute resolution and attention to ethics, fairness, and a balancing of different perspectives.

My remarkable wife Cristie works for Enterprise Elementary School District and we have resided in Shasta County for over 16 years. We have two children, Ethan (8th Grader), and Joseph (10th Grader in Shasta Union High School District). We stay busy taking advantage of the local outdoor recreation, and attending the boy's extracurricular and sporting events.

It cannot be said often enough, that the future success of our nation depends upon how well we educate our young people today. The challenges and opportunities our students will face, after they graduate from high school, are difficult for us to foresee. It is our responsibility as parents, teachers, administrators and trustees to ensure that our students have the tools to compete and succeed in the rapidly changing economic landscape. Our students, in the Shasta Union High School District, are fortunate to have dedicated teachers, staff and administrators who truly care about students and their future success. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work together with all of these talented people, to provide our students with the best that the educational community has to offer. 
Our family moved to Palo Cedro in 1996. We feel very blessed to live in an area with such magnificent natural beauty. We have three terrific kids, all attending high school at present. Therefore, my hobbies are, helping with homework, attending athletic events, volunteering at school, raising swine for 4-H and caring for two dogs, two ducks, a cat, four doves and a rabbit.

My entire family is the product of the public school system. I attended K-12 in the Anderson school districts, earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Davis and an additional bachelors and a doctorate from the University of California at San Francisco. My wife of 30 years, Teresa, likewise attended K-12 in the Bay Area public schools and is also a UC Davis graduate.  We have five wonderful children, all of whom graduated from the Grant and Shasta Union High School Districts and are attending or graduated from the UC system. I feel we were all well prepared for our post high school experiences, and I want to assure this success to future Shasta County graduates.

Needless to say, I am a firm believer in the California public education system and look forward to seeing our schools continue to work well in educating “our” kids. Whether these students are on to college, career, or military service, my goal is to enable them to be fully prepared to fulfill their dreams after they graduate from the Shasta Union High School District.

I was born on an Air Force base in Moses Lake, Washington, where my father was a meteorologist who gave weather reports to spy planes over Russia. My mother was an RN. I graduated law school from the University of La Verne in Southern California. While in law school I worked as a substitute teacher including long term ESL mathematics. A solo law practice since 1990 followed. My daughter graduated from Shasta High. Her mother is a Redding hairdresser. My daughter was two time female swimmer of the year and then swam for Oregon State which ended their swimming program in 2019 and she transferred to Northern University in South Dakota on a full athletic scholarship, graduating in 2022. Swimming was very good for her. I was a typical swim parent and was involved as a swim official. 
There at Northern she now seeks a masters degree. I told her I was running for the school Board. She asked why, I told here that I wanted to give back. Shasta was very good for my daughter. The teachers and coaches were very good.
My hobby is climate change, as son of a military meteorologist, something my father and I talked a lot about before he passed from cancer about 10 years ago. I too was in the Army Reserves and my MOS was electronics. Ironically, our family was evacuated after the Carr fire. That fire destroyed half our neighborhood. Specifically I am interested in an electrical complexity to climate and CO2 and the Gaia hypothesis. Recently this hobby has been put to video on YouTube and you can find my channel under my name and the term “convergence”. I believe technology is rapidly converging and shining light on the subject.

"Our students are our future," we have often heard said. And I truly believe that is true. Today's high school students are our future business owners, teachers, doctors, presidents and so much more. The success of our students greatly depends on how well teachers, parents, trustees, and other administrators can work together to provide a positive experience and education for their high school career. Our job is to educate and help them to thrive in high school, not just survive the experience. I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with the other trustees, teachers, and parents to help provide this thriving environment for our students. 
Our family moved to Redding in 2008. We love the outdoors and all the fun opportunities to travel a short distance to a lake or a mountain. I love the water and often visit the different lakes and waterfalls in the area. My background includes teaching, athletic directing, and being a small business owner. I have a commitment to our youth and have been actively involved as an athletic director, and a coach, as well as, volunteering with non-profits, and teaching for over 20 years. As a SUHSD Board member, I look forward to listening to and working with parents, students, teachers, and board administrators.
