I have been affiliated with LL since the 1960's when I played. I coached and was on the board when a younger brother was involved from 1970 to 1981. I ran the junior umpire program for that league for the last three years. I coached and managed my son in SCLL from 1998 to 2003. I was Santa Cruz Safety Officer for 2002 and 2003. I returned to umpiring in 2004, became UIC for SCLL midway through the season in 2004. I Joined the District umpires in 2005, including a clinic at Western Region that year and again in 2013. I was UIC for Santa Cruz LL and Capitola Soquel LL in 2006.
I have been organizing and instructing at the Section 5 Western Region Outreach Clinic since 2011.
In 2012 I umpired at the West and Northwest regional tournaments in San Bernardino California.
