A product of California schools, I earned an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy, where I played varsity football and ran track. Upon graduation, I began my career in public service and was commissioned as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Navy. I served in combat in Kosovo and Iraq while also supporting counterterrorism and cyberwarfare operations around the globe.

However, no singular event crystallized my desire to serve more than the calamitous riot on Capitol Hill birthed by blatant deceit, disinformation, & dishonesty. I never would have imagined in 2021, twenty years after 9/11 catapulted my career into counterterrorism and force protection, that America itself would need to apply similar tradecraft domestically. I have every reason to run for Congress and promote democracy.
