Facilities Manager

As Facilities Manager at Point Blue Conservation Science my primary responsibility is managing all Point Blue facilities (headquarters plus 6-12 field facilities). I also provide facilities related support for Point Blue staff and management and provide Office Management Services for our Petaluma Headquarters.

I joined the military in 1996 to travel the world and enjoy new life experiences. Upon my return, I took the knowledge I had acquired from the military and applied it to a new career in micro electronic engineering at Hewllett Packard.

In 2003 my career path took another turn when a friend suggested that I delve into software development. While working in software development, I attended the Academy of Art University in SF where I studied computer drafting and design.

During my career in software development I worked with two of the largest software developers in the world, in numerous capacities. In the later years of my career in software development I picked up a new hobby in real-estate procurement. Shortly after taking up this new hobby it prompted me to make one final career change in 2012 into Facilities Management.

Beginning my career in facilities management as a Facilities Coordinator with one of the aforementioned software development companies, an opportunity to take a position as the Operations Manager with a local non-profit based out of San Rafael presented itself to which I seized the opportunity.

I have two daughters 9 & 6 that attend school here in Petaluma and in my spare time you can usually find me, hiking, swimming, diving, traveling, hanging out with my daughters, or fixing something.

I travel frequently to Brasil and the Islands of the Pacific to dive and be close to nature.
