I wake up every day in our beautiful community and am amazed and thankful for the opportunity to live in Rancho Palos Verdes. My wife Susie and I intentionally sought out RPV as the community we wanted to settle in and raise our future family. Many years later we regularly hike, bike and enjoy our pristine coastal areas as well as stay very active in many school, community volunteering, coaching and scouting activities. After growing up in Colorado, living overseas on multiple occasions and traveling to almost 50 countries I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather live.
I am in my second four-year term in public office, having been elected in 2009 and re-elected in 2013. I run a commercial real estate business and currently serve in the California State Military Reserve. I have served in the regular army or reserves for over 15 years. I have been the past president of my HOA, the RPV Council of Homeowners Associations (CHOA), the RPV General Plan Update Committee and numerous other professional, public agency and community boards.
