  • Solving homelessness.

Experience

Biography

Community and family mean everything to me. I’ve been proud to call Orange County home my whole life and have played a part in making it a better place as a dad, a small business owner, coaching youth sports and scouting, even on the School Board, and as Mayor of Laguna Hills. My wife, Monica, and I live in the 45th District and are blessed to have four children who attended neighborhood schools.

The path that led me to run for Congress started long before I took public office. When my father passed away suddenly I stepped up to save the family business, managing a 200-store retail jewelry chain that provided for our family, our workers and their families. Keeping his entrepeneurial spirit alive as an Orange County small businessowner, I currently run a wholesale fashion jewelry business.

His passing taught me that when things look bleak – don’t give up, don’t back down. Running for Congress is no different. Where we are heading is unacceptable. I won’t let radical liberals dismantle our way of life. I believe in a Conservative vision to move Orange County families forward. I can get it done in Washington because I’ve done it here at the local level.

An active life-long Republican with unwavering Conservative values, I stood up for Orange County families as Mayor of Laguna Hills and as a member of the Saddleback Valley School Board. While serving on the Saddleback Valley Unified School District Board for 18 years, I also served as President of the Orange County School Boards Association, represented Orange County on the State School Boards Association’s Board of Directors, and was a member of the Board of Directors for the CIF Southern Section, where I promoted increased participation and safety in high school athletics. For several years I organized and directed the local Symposium on the Family, which works to educate parents and encourage local institutions to support families and children.
