My Top 3 Priorities

  • We have evolved into a city where it is normal to see people breaking our laws on a daily basis. Enforcement of our smaller laws (ie stop signs etc) will impact other crime. MB needs to become a very uncomfortable place for criminals to operate.
  • There are many things that threaten our sense of 'community' in MB. I want to ensure kids growing up have the same greate childhood I had growing up here. This means pushing back against Sacramento and AirBnB. We need neighbors in our neighborhood.
  • Nobody wants to see us turn into what we've seenin Venice and Santa Monica. While I don't buy that anyone can "solve" homelessness, we can, through a joint effort of our socoal services staff, and our law enforcement, avoid being overrun.



I attended Pacific Elementary School, MBI, MCHS, USC, and the Arthur A Dugoni UOP Shcool of Dentistry.  I am a fourth generation MB resident.  My great grandmother was one of the founders of the wonderful Neptunian Women's Club, my Great Uncle was the Chief of Police.  My Uncle is a 50 year Rotarian.  My Grandfather Claude owned three Chevron Service Stations in town, and my father was a dentist like me for over 50 years.  For the past 10 years I have been running the practice that I bought from my father.  There is a long tradition of service in my family, and I'm ready to step up and help keep Manhattan Beach safe from those who would mean to do it harm for their own financial game. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I have neither asked for nor accepted any monetary donations of any kind.  I am in this only for Manhattan Beach.  This is not something I'm doing simply because I have free time.  There is no real chance for personal enrichment out of this.  I am doing this because I care about the city I live in, grew up in, and my family will continue to live in for generations to come.  That is why I feel that, at a major turning point in our cities history, it's important to have someone who understands as well as anyone our way of life, and will fight dilligenly to keep what we hold dear.
