Hi, and thank you for your interest! I'm excited to be running and thrilled at the opportunity to become a City Council Member for Del Mar. My wife, Brie, and I first moved to Del Mar in 2010 and bought our house on 23rd Street in 2013. We feel blessed to live in Del Mar and plan to stay here for the rest of our lives. This is home. Brie works as a nurse at Scripps Green, and I work for an institutional investment advisory firm called SageView Advisory Group. I first became involved in Del Mar civic life through working on the finance committee, and then through leading the successful 2016 campaign for Measure Q, which will generate approximately $2 million per year in revenue for the City to fund key infrastructure projects. I graduated from the University of Notre Dame (Go Irish!), and love college football, pizza, craft beer, history, basketball, surfing, hiking, camping, and beach volleyball! I also volunteer at Father Joe's Villages in downtown San Diego and am working on a dorm-room inspired idea to end homelessness. My twin brother, Steve, and his wife, Selena, and son, Nolan, live right next door. Steve literally works out of his garage as a successful tech entrepreneur, Selena works as a nurse at Scripps Encinitas, and Nolan attends Del Mar Heights and is becoming quite the martial arts expert! We split responsibilities for Lola, a lab/shepherd mix rescued from Mexico. Look for me walking Lola, on the volleyball courts at dog beach, surfing in the water, or biking around town!
