My Top 3 Priorities

  • Will advocate for the unborn in the banning of abortion in CA.
  • Call for the restoration of public education with real curriculum that doesn’t have to be; disguised as something else, advocates hatred for our country, perverse sexual health and indoctrinates.
  • Will fight for all law abiding citizens in their right to bear arms and will propose legislation to repeal any legislation that is currently anti-2A.



American Military University Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, Public Policy (2022)

He knew from an early age that hard work would pave the way for something greater. His calling to protect and serve his country came early at the age of 14, in doing so, he enlisted in the Navy at 17 and after graduating from high school he left and served for over 22 years, retiring in sunny San Diego, California where he has resided for over twenty-five years.
