Hello and thank you for visiting my website. I was born and raised in San Diego, and IMG_3518I learned the value of hard work from my parents.

I lived with my mother growing up. She worked overtime to make ends meet. We lived in a small apartment, and she would drop me off at McDonald’s before 6 a.m. every day on her way to work and I would study before school. My father puts his life on the line every day for the California Highway Patrol. I valued the time we spent together growing up, and I continue to admire the hard work and long hours he puts in serving the public.

While attending college I started and ran a small business and took out student loans to pay my tuition. In fact, I still have more than $20,000 in student loan debt. These experiences shaped me as a young man and define me today.

Aunnamedfter graduating I worked at San Diego City Hall and at a local non-profit. I spent this time scrutinizing City Hall budgets. Many of the recommendations I made to save taxpayer dollars were implemented.

My experiences as a taxpayer advocate have prepared me to represent the residents of District 6. I understand the struggles of our working families and I want to use my experiences to be your voice at City Hall.

Our community has been neglected for too long.

We need an experienced voice on the City Council who will fight for us.
