Fire Chief

I was born and raised near Astoria where I started as a volunteer firefighter in the cadet program with Lewis & Clark Fire District at the age of 16. I graduated from Astoria High School; worked several seasons as a wildland firefighter for the Oregon Dept of Forestry; worked full time at Astoria Public Works where I became the Assistant Superintendent before moving forward with a full-time job in the fire service. I eventually went on to become the fire chief of Lewis & Clark Fire District before being hired by Forest Grove Fire & Rescue as Division Chief of Training & Operations. I worked at Forest Grove Fire & Rescue from 2006 til 2016. I was the interim fire chief at Forest Grove in 2008. In 2016 I went to work at Columbia River Fire & Rescue as Division Chief of Resource Management & Safety. I'm a member of the Oregon State Fire Marshals incident management "Red" team as a Division/Group Supervisor. I have an Associate's Degree from Portland Community College in Fire Protection Technology and a Bachelor's degree from Eastern Oregon University in Fire Administration. I've attended several National Fire Academy classes on campus in Emmittsburg, MD as well as Incident Management coursework on campus at TEEX in College Station, TX and have numerous state certifications in fire, rescue and EMS.
