Born in San Leandro, and a proud resident of Castro Valley, I have worked for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office since 1999. For the last 21 years, and for my entire life growing up the son of a retired Lieutenant, I have always had a strong connection to the County we work for, and the County many of us call home. Beginning my career as a non-sworn Sheriff’s Technician with SEIU, climbing through the ranks of Deputy Sheriff and Sergeant with the Deputy Sheriff’s Association, and now serving as a Captain and member of ACMEA, I am proud to be a part of this union and honored to know it will be the association I will eventually finish my career with. Promoting to Lieutenant in 2015, I have been represented by ACMEA since the same while learning the skills of management for the Sheriff’s Office.
I believe in transparency, ethical decision making, objective reasoning, equitable application of policies, and ensuring the men and women serving our communities do so responsibly and with respect. Prior to promoting to Captain, I worked in Internal Affairs as a testament to this desire, and as Compliance Captain for the Sheriff’s Office I am currently charged with the same. As Vice-President I would apply these beliefs to my position within our association, and I will work tirelessly for all ACMEA members across this County, ensuring we all continue to thrive together.
When not working, I enjoy tinkering on all things two and four wheeled, giving my dog too many treats behind my wife’s back, and looking forward to expanding our little family right here in the County of Alameda.
