I was born in Santa Fe, NM, and am a lifelong Democrat and member of our community. My wife, Ellen, and I live in Nambe, NM, in a home that I designed and built himself, along with our eight-year old son, Thomas, our three rescue dogs, Max, Brownie and Duke, and our two rescue cats, Jazzy and Boots.

After graduating from Pojoaque Valley High School, I studied engineering at UNM. I now work at Los Alamos National Laboratory and I have a particular interest in developing new materials for use in alternative energy. In 1990, I started my own business as a homebuilder, and I’ve designed/built over 25 homes, most of them right here in our community. Community involvement matters a lot to me, and I’m an active participant in a variety of local community-building organizations. I serve on the Board of Directors for the Santa Fe Humane Society, and I’ve coached baseball at Pojoaque High School, Little League, youth basketball and soccer.

I’m the proud father of four sons. My oldest, Aaron, studied political science at UNM. My second son, Eric, earned an athletic scholarship to Fort Lewis College, and my third son, Dominique, graduated from NMSU and is following in my footsteps building a career in mechanical engineering. My fourth son, Thomas, isn’t quite old enough for college yet – he’s only eight years old!

I’m currently serving a third term as a citizen legislator in one of New Mexico’s most politically diverse districts.
