Motivation to Run
August 2017 the incumbent, Judge Gary Kreep, was censured by the Commission on Judicial Performance for numerous ethical violations including his numerous unprofessional and disrespectful in-court treatment women and minorities. I am keenly aware of the need for fairness and uniformity in the interpretation and administration of the law and I pledge to treat all people with professionalism, dignity, and respect.
I am the ideal candidate to challenge judge Gary Kreep in the upcoming election for California superior court judge. I am keenly aware of the need for fairness and uniformity in the interpretation and administration of the law. I am a motivated attorney with extensive litigation experience who as a superior court judge would be tirelessly dedicated to upholding the state’s laws.
I further bring to the bench significant experience in both international and operational law stemming from my work in the Marine Corps, including my current assignment at European Command in Stuttgart, Germany.
As a Deputy District Attorney I have extensive experience prosecuting felonies, I have served as the Team Leader of the Regional Auto Theft Task Force, and have worked in and seen success from collaborative courts such as the homeless court program in Vista.
As a Judge Advocate in the Marine Corps Reserve, I frequently serve in the role of Preliminary Hearing Officer presiding over in-court criminal preliminary hearings in cases including murders, sex crimes, and complex thefts.
These experiences make me particularly well qualified to serve in the role of Superior Court Judge and set me apart as a candidate for this position.
Service to Country
While on deployments as a judge advocate with Marine infantry battalions in Iraq and Afghanistan (3/7 & 3/4) I garnered significant operational and international legal experience.
While in Al Anbar Province, Iraq, and again in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, I served alongside some of the bravest and most selfless patriots imaginable giving their all daily in highly austere conditions.
I am currently assigned to European Command in Stuttgart, Germany where I practice fiscal and international law.
My experiences in Europe, the Middle East, and Central Asia have expanded my understanding of America's role in the world and enrichened my respect for diverse cultures.
