I am a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, I served on Active duty from 1992 to 1996 and was nominated for a meritorious commission.
My service to our country taught me the importance of dedication, discipline, and sacrifice to forcefully fight for the American dream. After leaving active duty, I received my Bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University before continuing on to the Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver.
Since graduating from law school, I have spent my career advocating for justice and fighting for those being disadvantaged — first as a prosecutor with the Denver District Attorney and then returning to Arizona to work for the Maricopa County Attorney and the Arizona Attorney General before entering private practice.
As County Recorder, I have worked to bring a renewed energy and vision to the office with the goal of rebuilding trust in the election system in Maricopa County. We have focused on the voters’ experience, accountability and security. I will continue to work to make sure that every Maricopa County citizen who is eligible to vote is able to vote, whether at their kitchen table completing their early ballot or on Election Day.
I live in Phoenix, Arizona with my amazing wife and our three incredible daughters.
