University of Phoenix Associate of Arts Criminal Justice, Criminal Justice (2014)


I for one was born, raised, and live in Los Angeles, CA 43rd District where I attended and graduated from Ramona Elementary, Le Conte Middle School, and Hollywood High School.

I joined the United States Army at the age of 18 where I proudly served my country for 8 1/2 years, as many young men and women unselfishly do. I held a leadership position as a squad leader where I was honored by being responsible for the training, safety, and lives of soldiers. I had the honor of serving my country even further when I was deployed after completing my initial training in support of Operation Enduring Freedom from February 2003 - April 2004.

I worked in the retail business from 2006 - 2011 and was promoted within six months from being hired. The retail business taught me how to deal with, interact, and find solutions with and for people from all walks of life. Working as a detention officer for the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration Customs and Enforcement Agency I learned and experienced firsthand a portion of the operations of ICE deportation procedures. During this time I majored in criminal justice in order to understand how our criminal justice system works on a greater scale.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

               The duties of any public office exists to serve the citizens/public not special interest. The United States Constitution remains and must always be seen as the corner stone of our great nation. We must continue to grow based on the U.S. Constitution, our nation’s diversity, needs, and technology.

The U.S. military must always be reinforced in order to be prepared and respond to every type of situation in order to protect our great country; and as such we have an obligation to care for, assist, and support our veterans.

America’s public officials have a duty to always put its citizens, the people first. Political agendas and acquisition of votes should never come before the necessities of the public. Every government official is a servant of the public. America must return to the stability of checks and balances so that government can never be allowed to ever have too much power or total control over the people. Gridlocks, sequesters, and government shutdowns must never happen again.

When elected, YOU the PEOPLE are my boss. I work for YOU!

Your Ears, Your Voice, Your Servant.
