I'm not much for tooting my own horn and I'm not sure what people would actually like to know biographically wise so here is a brief overview. If you have any questions please let me know.

I have lived in Nevada since 1975, when I moved here with my parents at the age of five. I grew up in Zephyr Cove, which is on the south Nevada side of Lake Tahoe. We lived there until I graduated from Whittell High School in 1989. At that point, my parents moved away to Las Vegas when my dad got a job managing the Angel Park Golf Club and I went away to college.

I was always a good student and did especially well in math and science and computer related subjects. This led me to choose Electrical Engineering as my major in college. I attended the University of Southern California and received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 1993.

After graduation I came back to Las Vegas. I began working soon afterwards for Mikohn Gaming Corporation and have been there ever since except now it's called Progressive Gaming International Corporation (quite a mouthful). I always tell people that I'm a computer programmer at a company that makes stuff for casinos but I guess the more hoity-toity definition is that I'm a Software Manager for the Systems Division of a multi-national gaming company. I have been at the company now for 14 years.

I think I am well known amongst the people I know for being honest and being someone you can depend on regardless of the situation. I have always been an excellent problem solver and I am very good at seeing all the sides of an issue.

I love Nevada and can't imagine living anywhere else. I think this is the most free and most unique State in the United States. To get the opportunity to actually be a part of the State's government and help keep it that way would make me very proud.
