As a part of our mission to publish news helpful to Riversiders, The Raincross Gazette is expanding our 2024 Election Guide with a series of interviews with each candidate running for a city office in the March 5, 2024 election. Each candidate had several weeks to answer the same questions written in response to the nearly 500 questions Gazette readers submitted in a survey about their priorities for Riverside in the coming election.
Candidates are listed in the order they will appear on the ballot, which was determined through the California Secretary of State Randomized Alphabet Drawing conducted on December 14, 2023.
I moved to Riverside over 30 years ago and have lived in Ward 3 for over 17 years with my wife, Jennifer, and our two boys. My sons both attended Alcott and Gage and joined their mom as Poly High School alumni.
I spent many years coaching soccer in our local AYSO and competitive club programs. Over the last four years, I have served our community on the Charter Review Committee, the RCCD Measure C Bond Oversight Committee, and as an officer for Neighbors Better Together.
I’m a lifelong Riverside resident and local business owner. I was a Police Cadet with Riverside PD before I got my real estate license. After graduating from UC Riverside, I married my high school sweetheart, Lexie. We own a family real estate business and are raising our son in Ward 3.
I coached little league and high school track and field. I served on Riverside’s Agricultural Water Rate Task Force, where I advocated for affordable utility rates for residents and businesses. I actively volunteer, serving in non-profit organizations and helping those in need.
