  • I am a proud father of four public school kids who will fight to protect the high-quality schools of the South Bay and improve our schools statewide.
  • As a businessman, I have advised hundreds of companies. I will work to improve our business climate and pursue broadly shared prosperity in California while achieving our environmental, safety and consumer protection goals.
  • I am a citizen legislator working hard to represent the South Bay well. I will fight to kill misguided projects like high-speed rail so we can invest in our roads, local transit and water. I will protect taxpayers and Proposition 13.
Profession:Independent small businessman. I founded a corporate finance advisory business in 1999 and have led it ever since.
