Biography

Why me?

We can be honest and state that that’s what you want to read here. You want to know why I’m a better option than the others running in this recall or any other race and the answer is because I really don’t want to do it. I’m tired of sitting on the sidelines watching the same rhetoric play itself out election after election and generation after generation with no changes in how things are done in Sacramento.

I’m tired of people suffering under the crushing California bureaucracy and regulatory system. I’m tired of seeing news story after news story of things going wrong with my home state and seeing friends and allies so fed up that they’re only recourse is to leave for greener pastures. I’m tired of the weather being the good thing that our state government can’t ruin and the only thing we can point to as a reason to come to our once great state.

Frankly I’m tired of being tired. I’ve waited and watched for years hoping that a fighter would come along and put petty differences and ideological purity tests aside in order to reign in some of the crazy and I simply cannot wait any longer.

We’re told to be the change we want to see in the world and so I’ve opted to run for office to try and be the change I want to see in Sacramento. I want the government to leave me alone to be free. I want the government to be accountable to it’s promises and accountable to the people.

By all intents and purposes I’m not qualified for this or any government position but by all objective measures the people who we typical put in office are terrible at their jobs so it’s time to reconsider what we’re looking for in our candidates. Inside the system candidates keep failing us so I’m stepping up to be an outside of the outside candidate.

I’m going to just throw out the boilerplate stuff about any candidate for the moment. I went to various schools and then attended Fullerton College. I have a job that I have had since 2010 working for Fullerton Cameras. I’m currently on the Fullerton Economic Development Commission, which I’m pretty sure shouldn’t even exist, and I ran for City Council in 2016 which went about as well as I could have expected considering the money I was up against. I’ve been in a relationship with my wife since 1997 and we’ve been married since 2010 in which time we’ve had 3 kids. We also have a few cats and the wife got a puppy for putting up with my council campaign. That’s as much as I’m going to exploit my wife and children.

I’m not a career volunteer or community organizer and I’m not funded by some Super-PAC or non-profit. I’ve yet to take huge in or out of town donations and I am grateful to the supporters I do have because they are not faceless checks but hard working people who deserve the dignity of not being taken advantage of by our out-of-touch government.

I’m registered No Party Preference, or what was commonly known in California as “Decline to State”, and have been registered as such since I first registered to vote in 1998. I have voted in every election and judge candidates/propositions by their commitment to liberty.

I’m not opposed to running in a party but have simply refrained from joining the (R)s, much to the chagrin of my father-in-law, owing to their continued support for establishmentarians who do not act in accordance with the stated GOP beliefs and platform. I believe in a limited government and would gladly work with or within any serious party willing to advance that goal.
