With deep family roots in Uptown Albuquerque and the Sedillo Hill area of the East Mountains, I grew up, went to school, and started my business here in Bernalillo County. My wife and I plan to stay in this place we love and work to make it even better for our family and community.
Education runs deep in my family. I attended APS schools, graduated from Sandia High School, earned a bachelor's degree in Chemistry and Biology from the University of New Mexico, and then a master’s degree in Biology. Both my parents were public school teachers and my wife Savannah is an APS kindergarten teacher.
When I was 13, my dad bought me a lawnmower and I started mowing neighbors’ yards for money. That early experience led me to start my own local landscaping and plumbing business, where we now contract with homeowners and Fortune 500 companies alike. I am a licensed journeyman plumber and a mechanical contractor. I take great pride in my business and believe in supporting the community and my employees.
I serve as the President of the Quigley Park Neighborhood Association, organizing events and bringing the community together. I have also served on the Northeast Community Policing Council and on the Civilian Police Oversight Board. I have also volunteered for the Animal Humane of New Mexico. I am a hobby beekeeper, an avid gardener, and also enjoy hiking in the Bosque, the Foothills, or backpacking in the Pecos with our two rescue dogs, brothers Oso and Sol.
