Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Enable equal access to the courts for all citizens.
  • Fairly and evenly dispense justice.
  • Maintain the integrity of the judicial system.



Profesión:Superior Court Commissioner
Superior Court Commissioner, Ventura County Superior Court (2016–current)
Senior Deputy District Attorney, Ventura County District Attorney (2007–2016)
Deputy District Attorney, Ventura County District Attorney (2000–2007)


Pepperdine University School of Law Juris Doctor (2000)
University of Washington Bachelor of Arts, International Economics (1996)


For 16 years as a trial prosecutor with the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office, and now as a judicial officer with the Ventura County Superior Court, I have spent my entire professional career serving the people of Ventura County.  I am proud to have earned the endorsements of District Attorney GREG TOTTEN, Sheriff GEOFF DEAN, the Ventura County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, and over 30 SUPERIOR COURT JUDGES.


While a Senior Deputy District Attorney, I handled violent felony gang crimes, domestic violence matters, major narcotics violations, and human trafficking cases.  In addition to trying over 70 jury trials, I taught prosecutors and police officers from throughout the United States on topics including the Fourth Amendment, gangs, and hate crimes.  


In 2016, I was selected by our local judges to be a Superior Court Commissioner.  I have since presided over family law, civil, probate, truancy, and criminal cases, and I am a 2017 graduate of the B.E. Witkin Judicial College.


Being a fourth-generation Ventura County resident, I feel a deep sense of responsibility to give back to the community that has given my family so much.  That is why I ask for your vote to serve you and each member of our community as your Superior Court Judge.
