I was born in Crow Agency, MT, and am an active enrolled member of Taos Pueblo, NM. I attended Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO, graduating with a BA in Business Administration.
I have over 19 years of Federal service, all within the Department of Interior. Prior to becoming the Grant Manager for Office of Indian Economic Development with the Bureau of Indian Affairs in October 2021, I was the Realty Specialist Grant Manager within the Fish & Wildlife Service. My wife Adrienne and I live in Albuquerque with our combined 4 kids and a bulldog. Outside of extended family and tribal obligations, we spend all our time and money on the kids, school, school sport, and home DIY projects.
