I am a California native and 16 year resident of Grover Beach. My wife and I both grew up in Southern California and spent several years in the San Francisco Bay Area before relocating to the Central Coast. After leaving Northern California, where I worked as a website producer during the Dot-Com bubble and burst of the early 2000’s, we chose Grover Beach as our new home where I have worked as a personal chef, restaurant manager, and for the past 12 years, as a wholesale distributor and sales manager to our awesome Central Coast restaurant community. Together, with my wife and daughter, I enjoy hiking, swimming, painting, cooking and a good conversation. Keep an eye out for me and my dog (Albus) as I walk our streets on the campaign trail. I’d love to hear your stories, learn what makes Grover Beach home for you, and what you think needs to change in our city!

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am running for Grover Beach City Council because I believe our city is at a crossroads. We are ready to grow. We are ready to support a thriving downtown retail, restaurant, and tourist economy, but it’s essential that we keep the individualistic spirit that has defined us since the foundation of our city. We also find ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic that has crippled much of our local economy and made many of us re-evaluate our priorities. I am running for Grover Beach City Council because I believe I can help our city recover from this crisis. I believe I have the vision and temperament to help lead our city through these dark times and to see us through to a vision of increased prosperity and community in the years to come.
