Bio: I am a North State Native, raised in Weaverville. I love Shasta County and am thankful to be part of the Economic Development Team. After high school I joined the US Marine Corps and served as a Topographical Intelligence Specialist, serving primarily in Washington DC and Okinawa, Japan. I then went on to Humboldt State University where I earned a Political Science Degree. I worked for Congressman Wally Herger in his Redding Field Office until his retirement. Upon his retirement I was selected to attend the Coro Center for Civic Leadership’s Public Affairs Fellowship and worked in San Francisco with a multitude of different entities. After the Coro Fellowship I returned to Redding with my wife Ericka to start a family and now am the proud father of two boys, Hunter and Zach.
