My Top 3 Priorities

  • Promote sound policies locally that matter to citizens such as fixing roads and infrastructure. .
  • Keep the San Diego Republican Party focused on finding, supporting, and electing candidates with conservative social and fiscal values.
  • Promote and support local elected officials efforts to increase good paying jobs by eliminating red tape and regulations.

I have a BA from Cal State Fullerton and an MBA from Thunderbird Business School, the top international business school in the US.

I have been a businessman my entire life.  As a Director of Sales and Business Development in Silicon Valley, I sold over $150 Million in American software and hardware to the top high-tech companies in Japan.  I was the top salesman in every company I worked for.
