Daniel Ambrose

Resource Recovery Worker

I have worked for the City of Santa Cruz for 30 years full-time—I can’t believe how the years have added up! Before Public Works, I was in the Parks and Recreation Department.

I enjoy operating the street sweeper. The best part of this work is my shift from 4:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. I get to experience “green and free” Santa Cruz as it wakes up five days a week.

I have horses and a donkey, enjoy Tex-Mex food and listen to Country and Western music when not working.
