Starfleet Officer[]

He graduated from Starfleet Academy in 2369, and though he had put in for starship duty he found himself assigned to Starfleet Tokyo R&D as part of the engineering support staff.  After six months of what he described as unexciting work, he came to the attention of Lieutenant Satchio Nakamura after he fixed several glitches in the facilities internal sensor arrays.  She had him assigned to her project as an engineering assistant.

In 2371 he and Nakamura took a sensor system to the USS Lionheart in order to test its ability to detect cloaked vessels.  ("Blinded by Science")

Though the system did not function as intended, it showed great promise in other applications.  Later that year it was installed aboard the runabout Thames. Nakamura, Juarez, Kiva and Spencer Stone the runabout to Collapsar 49 to scan the black hole. Unfortunately, the sensor's reaction with the blackhole catapulted the runabout into the Mirror Universe.  He was killed by the counterpart of Christoffer Williams in that universe.  ("Shattered Mirror")

He was posthumously promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade.
