Community participation

I am on the Board of Directors of my home owner's association where I volunteer as the Treasurer. I sought the Treasurer's post because I can apply my professional experience as a provider of sound financial advice to the home owner's association. I also am a regular blood donor for the Blood Centers of the Pacific.


I am an avid cyclist and also look forward to hikes on a sunny day. I also play classical piano - took lessons for 10 years starting at age 6 - and I enjoy learning new pieces to play for friends & family. I also greatly enjoy the time I spend with my niece, sister, parents, and close friends. As of August 2014, I am married to my lovely wife Jocelyn.
