Who am I?

I was born in Escondido, CA. As a child I attended Emmanuel Faith Community Church and was in the local public schooling system; Conway and Rose Elementary Schools, Grant Middle School and Escondido High School where I met and began dating his wife-to-be, Evelyn when they were 17.

After September 11, I joined the US Navy. I served on several deployments aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD-6) and some time aboard the USS Nimitz (CVN-68). I has coordinated several stateside search and rescue operations for private sailing vessels in the area who had sunk or gotten lost, has inserted troops into and extracted them from Iraq via Air Mission and has overseen several Combat Air Patrol missions over Areas of Conflict.

He finished his undergraduate program at this time, and was conferred a B.Sc. in Information Technology and Project Management and is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).

After his Tour of Duty, I returned to Escondido with his wife, Evelyn and their 3 children (Rhiannon, Michael and Kaitlyn). I was there only a year before moving his family out of Escondido and into San Marcos.

I is the founder and primary shareholder of Mezzi Media LLC, the company I formed around his mobile software patents, and released software in the Android and iPhone markets, "NScene", a mobile commerce application for movie-related paraphernalia.

Why am I running?

California can no longer be a Corporate Piggy-Bank. We can no longer blindly smile and let foreign products poison our stores and drive our native manufacturers into bankruptcy. We need jobs, and we need them now! And they need our market. By leveraging market-access, forcing Corporations to Do Their Fair Share for our economy by providing jobs and opportunities, California can reduce our 21% U-6 Unemployment and grow our revenue base over $20 Billion, gain over $200 Billion in market momentum, and all without ever raising taxes.

My Goals

Bring the jobs back to California.
Get Financial Institutions out, and families into, housing.

About the Endorsement Process

The driving force behind all DFA endorsements is our members. We recognize that all politics is local and that what is considered progressive in Los Angeles may be very different from what's considered progressive in Louisville. For this reason, DFA does not have a litmus test of specific progressive positions for which a candidate must stand. Our endorsement is heavily weighted based on these questions:

• Will the candidate move the progressive movement forward in their community?
• Does the candidate have substantial support from our local members?
• Do the candidate's positions and policies fit into the broader progressive movement?
• Is the campaign people-powered and the candidate working to win?

If you have questions, or want to let us know about a candidate in your neighborhood, please call us at (802) 651-3200 or email us at [email protected] .
