I am a born and raised San Diegan; my father was Director of the Anti-Defamation League in San Diego for 30 years, and it was from him that I learned what it meant to serve the community. My mother started as a Rehab nurse before starting her own business, which she has run for almost thirty years. From her I learned about hard work, dedication and compassion. I see myself as a Citizen Politician; a man who wants to continue my family’s tradition of serving the community.

I attended University City High School before graduating with a B.A. in Political Science from the University of California Irvine. I then received his J.D. from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 2009 and became a member of the California BAR in 2010. After I completed my education I spent two years volunteering with Legal Aid’s Domestic Violence clinic, receiving the Outstanding Service Award in 2011 and the Wiley Manuel BAR Award in 2012.

I spent most of his career working with small businesses as their compliance officer and counsel both in San Diego and in the Delaware Valley/Philadelphia area. Upon returning to San Diego in 2015, I joined San Diego’s first nurse case management company as its Director of Operations. In 2017 was offered the opportunity to become an adjunct professor with San Diego State’s School of Nursing where he lectures on Business & Nursing.
