For the last two decades, I’ve been involved in a variety of local, state and federal political campaigns and community organizations.  Now, I want to be your champion in Washington.

I was raised in South Orange County and attended public schools. I graduated from Stanford University, where I was honored to serve as student body president, and am a proud alum of Duke Law School and the Coro Fellows Program. After law school, I served as Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Orange County, and then worked as an attorney focused on environmental and energy regulatory compliance and government affairs.

I’m a passionate believer in clean energy and have over a decade of experience in the industry, helping to accelerate the transition towards more sustainable power generation and transportation options. I sit on the board of the Center for Sustainable Energy, based in San Diego, and co-founded Sustain OC in Orange County. For my work in clean energy, I was named to the OC METRO 40 under 40.

I live in San Juan Capistrano with my wife, Chrissy, a graduate of the University of Arizona and Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and our two kids, ages 4 and 3.
