Occupation: Licensed Professional Engineer
Education: BS, MS Engineering
Cupertino is threatened by traffic gridlock, crowded schools, housing affordability crisis, and environmental degradation. The root cause is city government enabling overwhelming development.
I’m a champion for Democracy and Sensible Growth, keys to maintaining our quality of life. Using my professional skills, I have presented dozens of data driven analyses on development to the city that demonstrated failings in proposed mega developments. I’m a leader in the Better Cupertino grassroots organization of neighbors. Sensible Growth is crucial and balances the many aspects of our community.
We should not let developers’ interests dictate to us. The incumbents seeking reelection continue advocating for massive density projects. And several other candidates were/are vocal supporters of massive overdevelopment at Vallco, now 22 story buildings.
I’m a 21-year Rancho Rinconada neighborhood resident. My wife and I are a middle-class family that works hard so our children can attend CUSD schools. My Father and Grandfather were veterans that taught me very strong ethics, the importance of Democracy, and to always do the right thing. Every vote I will cast will be for the majority. I want to hear from you. On the Council I’ll serve you.

My Top 3 Priorities
Bring the residents voice to all city decisions. That is the most important responsibility of an elected official. Every decision I make, every vote I cast, will be for the resident majority. That is Democracy.
Sensible Growth development that the residents support. We must not saturate our roads and must not overcrowd our schools.
Require the maximum number of residential BMR units for new projects. Cupertino needs housing for teachers, public service personnel, senior citizens, and people with special challenges.
