Make family values and a strong sense of community your choice for city council on November 3rd 2020.
Born and raised in Michigan, I started my professional career working seasonally. I spent summers as a laborer in the construction industry, and worked in restaurants during the winters. I relocated to Southern California over a decade ago. I feel a strong connection to the region, specifically Dana Point, which is why I have chosen to raise my children and build my career here. Over the last two decades, I have climbed the ranks as a professional in the restaurant industry, advancing to General Manager. With the uncertainty created in the food and beverage industry as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, I have chosen to shift gears and change careers. This year I obtained my Resident Insurance Producer’s license, CA LIC# 4053570. My mentors, Saundra and Andres, at Gulf Pacific Insurance have over thirty years industry experience. I am excited for this next chapter of my life and hopeful that you will allow me to be a part of the next chapter of yours as well.
Since moving to California in 2008 I have been blessed with two amazing children and a wonderful partner. Abby and Max inspire me to dream big and be the best man I can be everyday, while my partner Sophie keeps me grounded and moving in the right direction.
I have been privileged to manage hundreds of talented men and women in wonderful restaurants from San Diego to Los Angeles. I was fortunate to work at a Dana Point location a little over two years ago, and when the opportunity to move to Capistrano Beach arose last year I could not pass it up.
Each day presents unique opportunities to be of service to our fellows. Over the past decade I have participated in outreach panels at jails and institutions across San Diego County. Now calling Capistrano Beach home, I am looking to serve this community as your voice on the Dana Point City Council.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”― Mahatma Gandhi
I have only a sincere desire to be a good man, a man of conviction and character, who leads by example and lives the positive change he hopes to affect around him. My hope is that enough of you read this and find me to be genuine and endearing. That my passion moves you and sparks a passion within yourself. I hope together we can drive Capistrano Beach forward as the premier beach community that it is.
