Experience

Biography

I have had the pleasure of calling the Central Coast home since I moved here with my family in 1996. Over the 20 years I’ve lived in this community I’ve attended public schools, worked and been involved with various economic improvement programs. My career has been in hospitality management, and it is my job to make sure that your expereince is pleasant and that your expectations are being met. I worked in a variety of different capacities over my hospitality career, and have learned valuable lessons, and gained valuable experince in project management, negotiation, budgeting, marketing, and creating solutions that appeal to a broad audience.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe Government is about service, not to one's self, but to those who elected you to office, those who live in your area of governence, and anyone who may be effected by your legislative activities. I believe government does not create jobs, it creates environments where business thrives, or dies, and that jobs are created by entrepreneurial minded people. I believe that the government's task is to punish criminals, but it is thier responsibility to reform those who can be reformed. I believe it is the responsibility of government to try to make our lives better than they were the day before by promoting prosperity, growth, and inovation.
