I have served as a representative of the Sacramento County Coroner's Office with the SCALE Board, since June 2007. I have been a member of SCALE since I began my career as a Deputy Coroner with the Coroner's Office in January 1998. Prior to working for Sacramento County, I was a Forensic Technician for the Solano County Coroner. During my three years there, I was responsible for all morgue operations and was trained in investigations. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Forensic Science and a minor in Chemistry from CSU Sacramento. I reside in Rancho Murieta with my wife and two boys.
