  • Highlights
    Before joining Cal OES, I served as a Special Deputy Attorney General for the California Department of Justice - Office of the Attorney General (Harris). There I led a team of attorneys and non-attorneys in a comprehensive report for the California Attorney General entitled, "The State of Human Trafficking in California 2012." I have published numerous law review and international journal articles and have presented/lectured in 10 counties. He is a federally recognized human trafficking training expert by the Office for Victims of Crime Training & Technical Assistance Center (OVC - TTAC) and Bureau of Justice Assistance Training and Technical Assistance Center (BJA - NTAC); helped California draft and negotiate Memoranda of Understanding with the Mexican Government, draft and lobby anti-trafficking legislation (both domestically and internationally) and play a prominent role as Contributing/Advisory Board member on two International peer reviewed Anti-Trafficking Journals. Aside from my work with CalOES, I recently graduated from the Naval Postgraduate School's Center for Homeland Defense and Security Master's Degree Program and am Research Associate for the University of Cambridge's Centre for Applied Research in Human Trafficking.
