52nd District

Counter Terrorism Attorney

I was born and raised in Southern California, a native SoCal son with my two older sisters. I am a military officer, I prosecuted terrorists at Guantanamo Bay as a U.S. Department of Defense official, I worked for the team that prosecuted the 9/11 alleged mastermind, I spent 18 months in Afghanistan during the surge as a Defense Department official, and I dedicated my life to advance the future of my nephews, my parents, my sisters, you, and all Americans who I am fighting for.

I lived the failed policies I’m fighting against and I have the experience to deliver results— With my leadership and proven solutions, I know how to solve San Diego’s veteran homelessness crisis. I will ensure our children have a future with education and skills that apply to tomorrow’s technologically advanced world. I know how to secure and protect our nation and community from criminals and terrorist networks. I know the struggle of business owners first hand I will fight to advance tax and regulation-cutting policies that will bring jobs that pay well and keep them here.

I will defend the Constitution with my life. In the military we don’t accept mission failure and as your Congressman I won’t stop until the mission is accomplished.

My family lived and achieved the American dream and we must preserve the American Dream for our children.

Time to take our community back. I would be honored to represent San Diego’s 52nd district. I am respectfully asking for your vote.
