John immigrated to the United States at an early age and has lived his life in California ever since. He loves his community, the environment, and strives every day to make the world a little better than it was yesterday. 

Growing up John participated in many sports... Baseball, Soccer, Hockey, and Figure Skating. He also did dance, which consisted of ballet, jazz, tap, and a whole plethora of contemporary styles. 

Growing up in a family of small business owners - his mother, father, and grandparents - he built in himself a great deal of respect for small businesses and their contributions to the everyday lives of people.


John went to a technology-based high school and excelled. He's never taken the education he has received for granted and hopes to make it more broadly available to Californians who don't have the same access to educational opportunities as he does. 


John recently graduated from Ventura County Community College with an AA in Political and Social Sciences. He is transferring to Cal Poly: San Louis Obispo to continue his education with a focus on Government and Policy Making, and a minor is Statistical Analysis. 

John has always loved politics - ever since he was in middle school. He's always known he's wanted to run for office and make California and his community better.

Filosofía política

John prides himself on his progressive values, social justice advocacy, and market-socialist economics. While aiming to invest more in the infrastructure, education, and healthcare of communities of color, he also plans to tackle lobbyist and corporate influence in Sacramento, head-on!

John believes the interests of every day Californians have been ignored in Sacramento because of the influence of corporate lobbyists on our Politicians. He wants to give a voice back to the people of this state by running a Grassroots campaign solely built on the communities around him. No corporate or PAC influence.

"For five decades, California has been run by multi millionaires from San Francisco and Los Angeles. You deserve someone that represents your interests, not corporations. I'm just like you a hard-working Californian, trying to get by. Together, let's fix our state!
