I arrived in Las Vegas in 1963 as an 8-month-old cheerful baby of an Air Force Veteran and his wife. Our home was walking distance to McCarran Airport, the jet fuel storage tanks as you enter the airport now sit on that very spot.


As my father’s career grew, we moved around Las Vegas and that meant going to different schools including Robert E Lake, Eldorado High School and Valley High. After graduating from high school, I entered the United States Army which afforded me the opportunity to travel and meet new people. I learned that true leaders do not have egos and are typically very humble.


During my time in the service to this country I served during 5 different conflicts and each time I met someone from that country that was not who the media had portrayed them to be. Most were hard working people that were begging for a chance to live the life that most of us take for granted. After 6 years of active service, I transitioned to the National Guard and was able to round out my career with new challenges as well as develop young soldiers into great leaders. While a Guardsman, I was introduced to the field of emergency services. Which made me able to work as a Deputy Sheriff for 4 years and become a certified K9 officer and then finally transition to the Fire service where I am currently able to help those in need.


I am blessed with four children and four grandchildren as well as a golden doodle that is full of personality! My children inspire me every day and amaze me with their hope and desire for a future that is both fulfilling and exciting. I am proud of all that they have done with their lives as parents and hardworking individuals.


I believe in living debt free as much as possible and find that keeping to a budget is a blessing and not a curse. The freedom of knowing that you can accomplish a life of less stress and financial freedom is one that I freely share. The one thing that I want to stress is that this is not about my wants I am not seeking any glory or praise for doing the job I’m elected to do. It’s about the people of Ward 2 and the City of Las Vegas and making Las Vegas Great again after a crippling Pandemic and the moratoriums that have created the life we currently see.
