Professional Biography:

A native Nevadan, Oscar was elected to office to represent Ward 3 in 2012 and was re-elected for a second term in 2016. Ward 3 extends over northeast, central and southeast Reno. The ward includes neighborhoods east of the University of Nevada, Reno, Wells Avenue, Mira Loma, and stretches south to parts of Damonte Ranch. 

As a member of the Reno City Council, Oscar brings his broad base of work experience and education. His knowledge within the construction industry, health care arena, understanding of economic and community development and practice within the social service and community outreach sectors contribute to the overall effectiveness of the City. Oscar is passionate about finding solutions to our city and region by working directly and creatively with our neighborhoods, non-profit organizations, education leaders, businesses and our youth. 

Oscar has lived in the Reno-Sparks area since he was four years old. He is a proud graduate of Sparks High School. Oscar received Associate degrees in Liberal Arts, Ethnic Studies and Social Science from Santa Ana College and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography from the California State University, Fullerton. Oscar also garnered dual Masters Degrees in Social Work (MSW) and Urban Planning (MUP) from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Since taking office, Oscar has served as Vice Mayor twice and has been recognized as Elected Official of the Year by the American Planning Association’s Nevada Chapter, a “Top Twenty Under Forty” by the Reno Gazette-Journal. In 2015, Oscar was selected to join an international class of urban leaders as a Vanguard for "Forty Under Forty" by Next City and was appointed to Next City's Board of Directors in 2017, elected to a renewable three-year term that expires in December 2019.
Oscar currently serves on the Governor’s Workforce Investment Board and the Community Foundation of Western Nevada’s Advisory Board. Additionally, in the Fall of 2016, he joined the School of Social Work in the Division of Health Sciences as an adjunct professor at the University of Nevada, Reno.


When Oscar isn’t working hard for Reno, he enjoys cooking with his wife, Sarita, playing with his twins, Samiya and Dario, spending time with family and friends, volunteering for a nonprofit, and exploring the beautiful landscapes of Northern Nevada.
