  • Biography in Brief

    A native Oregonian, Dennis grew up in Central Oregon. His family moved to Keizer while he attended college at Southern Oregon College.

    Dennis has a professional background that is a mixture of public service, banking and finance.

    Fifteen years of public employment and nearly 20 years in various elective offices provide an unique understanding and perspective to business and government issues.

    In the private sector, Dennis is experienced in banking and finance. He also works for, and with, non-profit organizations and their Boards of Directors. In 2013, he was appointed President of collegiate baseball's West Coast League and he devotes a substantial amount of his professional time to the league.

    After earning a Juris Doctorate and Willamette University's first Certificate in Law and Government, Dennis returned to Keizer where he resides and began private practice.

    Dennis combines this unique set of 'real world' experiences, skills and perspective to serve his clients. Initial inquiries are discussed confidentially at minimal charge.
