Choose to change our path towards unity and civility. Choose collaboration, inclusiveness, and respect.

We can do amazing things TOGETHER. Within an environment where differing opinions can be openly discussed without fear of name calling and ridicule, we can bring out the best in each other to creatively address the challenges we are facing as a community.

Vote for Change.

I deeply desire to serve the residents of Foster City and I hope to have the honor of being selected by you to do so.

I believe my life experiences and commitment to ethics, civility, and collaboration make me the best candidate to overcome our challenges with development, education, and traffic while fostering a community centric environment for our residents and small businesses.

When people ask me what I do for a living, my answer is based on who I am. I am a father, a husband, a brother, a son, a friend, and a businessman.

My parents raised me in Foster City with Foster City values oriented towards family and community. As an All-League athlete in multiple sports at Burlingame High School and an athlete in college, I learned about the importance of leadership and teamwork from a very young age.

During summers while at college, I worked for the City of Daly City in Parks and Recreation, Public Works, and Water/Wastewater.

I earned a degree in Electrical Engineering from UC Davis and an MBA from Santa Clara University.

I grew to Senior Management through a series of promotions at Xilinx over a 15 year career. My professional experiences have enabled me to work across our country and around the world which has exposed me to multiple cultures for extended periods of time.

Today, as a Managing Partner and Chief Marketing Officer at Building Kidz Worldwide located in Foster City, I am doing my part to enhance early childhood education and create jobs for hard working teachers across our country. I am a Board Member and coach for Little League and I coach for AYSO.
