A PROBLEM SOLVER COMMITED
TO THE PEOPLE OF ARIZONA
I AM A CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVE
.....running for the office of State Senator, to represent you, 'The People of LD-1'. NOT an insider politician, but rather a successful businessman who knows the meaning of long hours, hard work, and personal sacrifice. YES, I did build it! Hold me accountable for a better and more prosperous Arizona; for ourselves, our children, and future generations.
God Bless America!
I honorably served our country and took an Oath to God that I would support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic – and I still hold to the values outlined in that Oath today. I am a proud conservative patriot to our country.
While stationed at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, I utilized my medical training to improve and comfort the lives of our wounded warriors and their families.
I obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Zoology/Chemistry (Pre-Med), and a Masters Degree in Business Administration from California State University Long Beach. I went on to put myself through Law School at Southwestern University School of Law, where a research paper that I wrote was published in the UCLA Journal of Environmental Law and Policy. Upon graduation, I passed the California Bar Exam on my first attempt.
I obtained my Real Estate Broker's license in 1983, and owned and operated a Century 21 office in Fountain Valley, California for several years. I've negotiated thousands of transactions and legal cases over the years, a skill that translates into getting legislation passed! For over 25 years, I volunteered my time to the Realty Investment Association of California (RIAOC), giving weekly legal updates to commercial & investment Real Estate Brokers about timely matters of interest. In addition, I taught 90 units of broker licensing courses while serving as an Adjunct Professor at both Rancho Santiago and Saddleback Colleges.
As a young attorney, I worked at both small and large law firms in the fields of Environmental Law, Medical Malpractice, and Real Estate. For 28 years, I owned and operated a law firm where I negotiated the resolution of hundreds of cases, and gained invaluable experience in all aspects of real estate and business law, including but not limited to: land use, zoning, development, variances, conditional use permits, contract negotiations, transactional matters of all descriptions, boundary disputes, property management, litigation, arbitration, mediation, and informal dispute resolution. I also volunteered as a Los Angeles Municipal Court and Superior Court Judge Pro Tem, as well as a Mediator and Arbitrator for the Orange County Bar Association.
I served as a member of the Board of Directors, Treasurer, and ultimately President of a Homeowner's Association with over 5,000 homeowners and an $8.5 million annual budget. Issues related to land use frequently arose and were resolved. My beautiful wife, Sharon, and I currently volunteer our time teaching 'Constitution 101', based on Hillsdale's College Curriculum, to hundreds of citizens within the community. In addition, I proudly served as First Vice Chair to the Republican Party of Yavapai County for the year 2021.
