I am a native of Santa Rosa and began my 27 year fire service career with Rincon Valley Fire Department - Larkfield Station where I began riding tailboard. I soon joined the Federal Government as a civilian Firefighter, Engineer and Rescue Squad member. My years were spent between Two Rock Coast Guard and Presidio Fire Departments. 

Following that time on the line I joined San Rafael Fire Department Fire Prevention Bureau where I held positions of Fire Inspector, Deputy Fire Marshal, Acting Fire Marshal and Captain Specialist. Additionally I participated as a Hazardous Materials Specialist on the Marin County Hazardous Materials Response Team for 15 years, and as a Fire Investigator on the Marin County Fire Investigation Task Force for 20 years.

In 2011 I retired as a Captain Specialist.
